The Triumph of Seeds, with Thor Hanson
Eagle Harbor Book Company, Sunday, April 12 at 3pm
We are pleased to welcome back bookstore favorite, award-winning conservationist Thor Hanson, for his latest exploration of the natural world, and our relationship to it, The Triumph of Seeds: How Grains, Nuts, Kernels, Pulses, & Pips Conquered the Plant Kingdom and Shaped Human History. Hanson explores the story of seeds by asking a simple question: Why are they so successful? Seeds have become so abundant that it's hard to believe that for much of evolutionary history, they did not even exist. Hundreds of millions of years passed where other plant life dominated the earth -- first algae, and then spore plants like quillworts, horsetails, mosses, and ferns. Once they evoloved, though, seeds became an incredibly efficient mechanism for plants to reproduce, protect themselves, and travel long distances. The evolutionary history of seeds shows not only why they have been able to thrive in nature, but also why they are so vital to human survival. Hanson blends expert, yet understandable, explanations of science with humorous first-person reportage and fascinating historical anecdotes. From a mountaintop overlooking the Dead Sea to 300 feet below an Illinois coal mine, from an encounter with vipers to a misguided attempt to crack an ironclad nut, Hanson takes readers on a fascinating scientific adventure through the wild and beautiful world of seeds. “Who knew that seeds could be so thrilling and dangerous? Thor Hanson is a lively storyteller, a lyrical writer, and a quick wit. The Triumph of Seeds is more than an engrossing work of natural history. It's a compelling and highly entertaining journey, populated by scientists and historians, criminals and explorers, aviators and futurists. Following Hanson's global voyage is the best sort of armchair travel, because it is filled with wonder, poetry, and discovery.”

—Amy Stewart, author of The Drunken Botanist: The Plants That Create the World's Great Drinks “As he did in his phenomenal Feathers, Thor Hanson brings us the nearly incredible world of seeds in a package as graceful and elegant as they are themselves, gift-wrapped in utterly seductive stories. I cannot recall a book I was so eager to finish, that I might begin it again.” —Robert Michael Pyle, author of Wintergreen and Mariposa Road

_______ Thor Hanson is a conservation biologist, Guggenheim Fellow, Switzer Environmental Fellow, and member of the Human Ecosystems Study Group. The author of Feathers and The Impenetrable Forest, he lives on an island in Washington State.
