By: Bronwyn Chester (Author)
160 pages, 50 b/w illustrations
Following the trail of 50 different trees, Island of Trees presents a natural, inspirational perspective on the Island of Montreal, offering a sense of belonging to an ancient forest in its modern form. Going beyond the traits defining the trees and instead interpreting their stories, the collection complements each tale with a fascinating illustration. Montreal is demonstrated as having its own unique ecosystem – insulated by the St. Lawrence River and the Riviere des Prairies – allowing species such as the giant cottonwood poplars to thrive all along the shoreline. The isle's exotic species are also explored, from the black walnut and tulip trees to the dawn redwood, accentuating the area's diversity.
Expanding on the author's original weekly column for Montreal's Gazette, Island of Trees groups its subjects by territory, providing natives and visitors alike the opportunity to not only better know and appreciate Montreal's trees, but also discover the hidden places and obscure histories of this intriguing locale.
