By Aja Barber
Narrated by: Aja Barber
Length: 8 hours 17 minutes

The Feather Thief

Beauty, Obsession, and the Natural History Heist of the Century

By Kirk Wallace Johnson
Narrated by: MacLeod Andrews
Length: 8 hours 4 minutes

The Feather Thief

“The Feather Thief is true crime at its best — a tale starting with the Amazonian explorations of Darwin-era naturalists, rooted in the eccentric sensibilities of Victorian collectors, fueled by the obscure cult of fly-fishing tying, and culminating with a shocking 2009 British Museum heist by a shy American flautist. All of these elements are deftly brought together at a thriller’s pace by author Kirk Johnson, a veteran of the Iraqi reconstruction effort suffering from PTSD, who stumbles across the story while fly-fishing in New Mexico in 2011. I mean, you can’t make this stuff up.”

Oak Flat

A Fight for Sacred Land in the American West

By Lauren Redniss
Narrated by: Lauren Redniss, Darrell Dennis, Kyla Garcia, Kimberly Guerrero, Hillary Huber, Ann Marie Lee, Elizabeth Liang, Crystle Lightning, Jon Lindstrom, A. Martinez, John H. Mayer, Arthur Morey, Tanis Parenteau & Various
Length: 4 hours 15 minutes

Oak Flat

Oak Flat is simultaneously an object of mesmerizing beauty and an urgent book of complete necessity. Lauren Redniss tells the tale of the struggle to preserve a site sacred to the Apache people from a copper mining project that would destroy it. Her vibrant illustrations and careful curation of competing voices convey the high stakes while honoring the dignity of the people on both sides, and the dignity of the natural world. This book is an astonishing achievement.”

A Terrible Thing to Waste

Environmental Racism and Its Assault on the American Mind

By Harriet A. Washington
Narrated by: Ron Butler
Length: 10 hours 13 minutes

A Terrible Thing to Waste

“A terrifying book when it comes down to it, but an important one. Washington is careful and methodical in her statements, emphasizing lives, generations, and ability lost, not merely the wrongs that were committed. If the first step is awareness, then Washington has hopefully pushed us a couple of steps up the stairs.”

The Seed Keeper

A Novel

By Diane Wilson
Narrated by: Kyla García
Length: 10 hours 42 minutes

The Seed Keeper

The Seed Keeper shimmers like the horizon in the summer heat—depending on how you look at it, it is a stunning historical novel, a paean to the land and the plants that people it, a prayer to Dakota women wading through generational trauma. It is all of these things, and so much more. Wilson deftly weaves together multiple voices to bring the original relationship of reciprocity between people and Earth into the present day. This is a clarion call to think about seeds as much more than commodities: Seeds are stories; seeds are possibilities; seeds are past and future generations. Powerful and compelling, The Seed Keeper will be treasured by readers who enjoy Robin Wall Kimmerer's lyricism, Barbara Kingsolver's activist bent, and Louise Erdrich's historical fiction.”
