Debut author

A magnificent and empowering memoir about a woman spearheading a global initiative to heal the world's rainforests and the communities who depend on them.

When Kinari Webb first travelled to Indonesian Borneo at 21, she was both awestruck by the beauty of her surroundings and heartbroken by the rainforest destruction she witnessed. As she got to know the local communities, she realised that their need to pay for expensive health care led directly to rampant logging, which in turn imperilled their health and safety further. After medical school, Dr Webb returned to Borneo, where she and her non-profit teams partnered with the local communities to find solutions to both protect the rainforests and improve their lives. But a near-fatal box jellyfish sting forced Dr Webb to spend the next four years fighting for her life – a fight that would lead her to rethink everything. Was she ready to expand her work to a global scale, confronting climate change head-on? Guardians of the Trees is an essential road map for moving forward and an inspiring story of communities coming together to heal the world.

'A unique perspective that offers immense hope and direction for humanity in the face of climate change.'
Kirkus Reviews

'In my experience, only a few people have really earned the right to ask us to hope. As this magnificent volume makes clear, Kinari Webb is the exception.'
Bill McKibben, author Of Falter: Has The Human Game Begun To Play Itself Out?

'This really is a journey of hope, told with an observant eye and an open heart.'
Booklist

'[Webb's] devotion to fighting for the health of the world and its people remains unflagging, as evidenced in her galvanizing and hopeful story. Those looking for a jolt of inspiration would do well to pick this up.'
Publishers Weekly

'Kinari Webb tells the story of how she fell in love with a rainforest in Indonesia and how she worked to save it by listening to and involving the local people and improving their lives by providing medical facilities. People, animals and the environment?all are interconnected. [...] A wonderful book.'
Jane Goodall

'This book is a wonder. An astonishing story, a page-turner, beautifully written, that will transport you deep into the rainforest and out again, transformed.'
Jennifer Ackerman
