****Remarkable Trees of the World
by Thomas Pakenham
Reviewed June 23, 2004.
W. W. Norton and Company, New York, 2002. 192 pages.
Available at Sembach Library (582.16 PAK).
This is the perfect book for anyone with the slightest fondness for trees. I may not have realized before that I’m a tree lover, but my delight in this book convinced me that it’s true, and reminded me of a forgotten passion in my life.
This is an oversized coffee table book with gloriously big and beautiful pictures of trees. All of the trees are remarkable, but in many different ways. Some are giants, some are strangely shaped, some are sacred, some are survivors. Some are simply ancient.
Thomas Pakenham’s wonderful photography and interesting meditations on these remarkable trees will leave you looking at all trees with new eyes.
