So glad they brought this book back. The original version was great, but this one is a really beautiful object - I love the design style. It's a good read too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful and engrossing book, 22 May 2004

This review is from: Ancient Trees (Paperback)
This absorbing book explores some of the oldest living organisms on the planet. Over eighteen types of trees are investigated, from the skyscraping Redwood of North America to the groundhugging Welwitschia of Namibia. Here is the complete list: Redwood, Brittlecone Pine, Montezuma Cypress, Monkey Puzzle, Amazonian Ancients (including Brazil Nut, Cumaru and Castanha de Macaco), Yew, Oak, Sweet Chestnut, Lime, Olive, Welwitschia, Baobab, Kauri, Totara, Antarctic Beech, Fig, Cedar and Ginkgo. At the beginning of each discussion there is an info panel providing the botanical name, distribution, the oldest known living specimen, historical significance and conservation status of each. The text is quite engaging and the introduction even covers the literary and artistic inspiration of trees in the works of Wordsworth, Vincent van Gogh, Thomas Jefferson, Aldous Huxley, William Blake and others. There is a double page full color map, about 150 beautiful color photographs plus black and white illustrations. The photographs are magnificent. This engrossing and visually impressive work concludes with an extensive bibliography and an index.

This review is from: Ancient Trees: Trees That Live for a Thousand Years (Hardcover)
I bought this book for my brother who never reads but loves his plants and trees, he was well chuffed and has now read it cover to cover! There's some lovely photography and it's full of information on various ancient tree species from around the world. A great gift for your tree-loving friend!
