Do not be fooled, as I was, that you are getting the full book plus illustrations. This is an abridged version of The Hidden Life of Trees, more akin to a coffee table version. The illustrations in the form of colour photographs are stunning and beautiful, but I'd rather have the full text.
Bought as a gift for my daughter who is doing her final year of an art degree and her work is centering around trees. This book fits the bill perfectly and is not just beautiful photography but is a fascinating insight into the secret world of trees, their interdependence on each other and what happens under the soil. I casually picked it up over the Christmas holiday and was immediatley hooked. The book is very well written, easy to access and really quite magical. I would highly recommend.
Would highly recommend this book. Absolutely love the pictures and it is so well written. I would even go as far to say it is one of my favourite purchases, would make a fantastic gift for any tree lovers (or not) out there.
This was an amazing book! The photography was beautiful, Which made my dads day as I bought it for him as he’s now confined to a wheelchair and used to work in the forestry commission, This is a subject close to his heart ! This book gave real pleasure and I’ve since purchased other books by the same author, equally as good..
This book is full of the most beautiful and varied images of trees, alongside a succinct but informative text that tells an amazing story. It has made walking amongst trees even more inspiring with the added knowledge I now have about how they behave.
