Pakenham, author of acclaimed Meetings with Remarkable Trees and Remarkable Trees of the World turns his attention to the most extraordinary tree of them all, the baobab. An object of wonder throughout the world, and associated with countless myths spanning centuries, these living giants may be the oldest life form on the planet, and they continue to baffle scientists. Pakenham recounts his adventures with different species of baobab in Africa and Australia, as well as the legends, the history and the tree's ongoing chances of survival.
'Welcome to the strange world of the baobab tree, the subject of Thomas Pakenham's excellent new book... truly outstanding photographs... All involved deserve credit for this original book.' -- James Fleming THE SPECTATOR
