Five stars for the actual content of the book but it's worth being aware that this is Mabey's Beechcombings with a new sleeve/title - something that (irritatingly) I'd missed when ordering.

The book deals with human reaction to trees and some of the problems this can bring about. It suggests taking the long view .

2.0 out of 5 stars Pity that the original pictures are missing 15 Nov. 2013
By Simon Esposito - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is no textbook, rather (in Richard Mabey's usual approach to nature writing) it is a personal set of essays around British woodland, its meaning and 'construction', and its future.

I did have access to it at my local library, but I thought it would be good to get this updated edition on Kindle. Unfortunately the one week refund window passed before I realized that the photographs and artworks of the original book are missing. This is a great pity because, rather than being 'general illustration', the book's pictures relate closely to the text, very often forming subjects of the book's essays. The original edition had full-page color plates, but I would have been happy enough with Kindle's black-and-white if the resolution was high. Anything really, just to capture the essence of the pictures and get some idea of what you're reading about.

I can't say if the latest paperback edition (if there is one) has done the same thing. But without some effort by the publisher on the pictures, $9.99 is too much to pay.
