Publisher's Summary

Thomas Pakenham's classic portraits of 60 distinctive trees, available in download form for the first time. Written by Thomas Pakenham and read by Bill Paterson with an introduction read by the author and music by Orlando Gough. This download includes a fully illustrated accompanying PDF booklet.

In 1996, with this astonishing collection, Thomas Pakenham produced a new kind of tree book. The arrangement owes little to conventional botany. The 60 trees are 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 - a moving testimonial to the Earth's largest and oldest living structures.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.
