Overview

Meetings with Remarkable Trees by Thomas Pakenham

Thomas Pakenham's bestselling book of tree portraits. With this astonishing collection of tree portraits, Thomas Pakenham produced a new kind of tree book. The arrangement owed little to conventional botany. The sixty trees were grouped according to their own strong personalities: Natives, Travellers, Shrines, Fantasies and Survivors. From the ancient native trees, many of which are huge and immeasurably old, to the exotic newcomers from Europe, the East and North America, MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE TREES captures the history and beauty of these entrancing living structures. Common to all these trees is their power to inspire awe and wonder. This is a lovingly researched book, beautifully illustrated with colour photographs, engravings and maps - a moving testimonial to the Earth's largest and oldest living structures.

For those of us who grew up reading Robin Hood, those who still climb tres, those who know trees are sublime, and those who love the forest, this book introduces us to the oldest and wisest beings on earth. I have found new destinations! It is written in a most Irish orientation, relating how some of the great species of trees found their way there and how they fare.
