About this book

The emphasis on this book is on the often unappreciated subject of tree bark. Using over 270 photos the authors show the wonderful range of colours and textures of bark over a selection of trees growing in temperate and sub-temperate climates. Photos have been taken during travels in USA, England, Europe, Turkey, Australia and New Zealand.

Accompanying the photos, stories are told relating to the history of the trees and how specimens were discovered in new countries, how they reached older countries, how they were received and what they were used for. This is an informal approach on a fairly random basis making an informative and entertaining publication, sprinkled with a little whimsy, some poetry and less publicised anecdotes.
