Diana Beresford-Kroeger is a visionary natural scientist and druid with a powerful and intimate understanding of our crucial relationship with the global forest, its flora and fauna and its role in our health and well-being. Beresford-Kroeger conducts her experiments in a garden laboratory outside Ottawa and in the house she and her husband built with their own hands.  Her latest book, The Sweetness of a Simple Life, is a handbook for living more harmoniously with nature, for guarding against illness, ensuring the vitality of our children and our pets—and it tells us how to protect ourselves and our environment from the effects of climate change and global warming. Her comprehension of and compassion for the forest is beyond description. She is truly a living treasure.
