About this book

Following his acclaimed Meetings with Remarkable Trees, Pakenham broadens his scope to discover trees with attitude all over the world, from the oldest to the tallest and smallest. Among the trees covered by Pakenham are the massive `General Sherman' of Sierra Nevada; the Mexican Bald Cypress at Tule; the awe-inspiring baobobs of Madagascar and the 5000-year old `Old Methuselahs', and the bristlecone pines discovered in the White Mountains of California.

Media reviews

Following on from his highly successful "Meetings with Remarkable Trees", Thomas Pakenham steps away from Britain and Ireland and traverses the globe in search of 60 more formidable trees - in size, history or myth - to photograph and investigate. From the giant redwoods of California to "upside down" baobabs in Africa, Pakenham emabarks on his voyage with gusto and a 30lb Linhof camera and tripod. Through torrential rain, snow, drought and blazing sun, his photographs capture the impressiveness and standing of these remarkable plants who support life, inspire lore and have been worshipped for centuries. Occasionally dispelling myth, at other times concurring, his writing supports the lavishness of his photographs, being amusing and witty at the same time as being informative. This is not a botanical work. It is an engaging study of trees and their relationship with man over the centuries by an author who has become fascinated with his subject and who wishes to share this enthusiasm with others. - Lucy Watson
