    The biggest redwood trees are over 1,000 years old, rising more than 35 stories in what's left of the once-vast, ancient redwood forest. Believed to be impossible to ascend, these majestic giants have remained unexplored until recently, when a tiny group of daring botanists and amateur naturalists discovered a lost, dangerous, and hauntingly beautiful world high above California.

    Cris says: "Great book!"
    "So boring"
    Overall

    Buyer beware - I found this book to be incredibly boring. A more than passing interest in botany might help the listeners level of enjoyment.

    The life Kamila Sidiqi had known changed overnight when the Taliban seized control of the city of Kabul. After receiving a teaching degree during the civil war - a rare achievement for any Afghan woman - Kamila was subsequently banned from school and confined to her home. When her father and brother were forced to flee the city, Kamila became the sole breadwinner for her five siblings. Armed only with grit and determination, she picked up a needle and thread and created a thriving business of her own.

    Goldie Hawn's life is an ongoing tableau of stories, and she has a born knack for telling them. In this candid and insightful book, Goldie invites us to join her in a look back at the people, places, and events that have touched her. It is the spiritual journey of a heart in search of enlightenment.

    Story

    I really enjoyed this book. Goldie tells her story in a fun, light, yet meaningful way. She sprinkles tidbits of wisdom in, but not so much that it comes off preachy. Having grown up watching her on Laugh In, this was a captivating nostalgic listen.
