This episode of the Green Interview features Gary Saunders, the author of the award-winning book My Life with Trees: A Sylvan Journey. In this exclusive Green Interview, he speaks with Silver Donald Cameron about how he is at home in the woods, and how that came to be, starting out in out port Newfoundland as the son of a river man. He spent most of his adult life in Nova Scotia as a forester, an artist, an educator, and a writer. His most recent book is a unique memoir of 30 chapters, each focused on a particular species of tree and on his memories of people associated with that tree. The book, illustrated with his own paintings and drawings, seamlessly blends science and memory in graceful and resonant prose and beautifully illustrates the depth of his understanding, not only from his own scholarship and observation but also from the indigenous people around him. The book recently won the Evelyn Richardson award.
