This is a beautifully crafted, memoir of a passionately curious geo-biologist and a warm and funny tribute to her fellow researcher-soul-mate. Interspersed with mini-essays about the nature of soil, earthworms and tenacity of plants and fungi; this book is a reverent look at our diminishing natural world. The anecdotes on navigating the complex obstacle course of grant-writing, budgeting and academic egos is hilarious. I absolutely loved this book and how it added to my appreciation of a dedicated scientific life.
