Show synopsis The arrangement owes little to conventional botany. The sixty 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 of Europe, the East and North America, Meetings with Remarkable Trees captures the history and beauty of these entrancing living structures. Each tree is a living historical monument in its own right and this volume reveals a variety of sacred trees, poets' trees and fantastical trees extraordinary in both their appearance and their history. Common to all these trees is their power to inspire awe and wonder. Meetings with Remarkable Trees is a lovingly researched, beautifully illustrated with colour photographs, engravings and maps - a moving testimonial to Earth's largest and oldest living structures.
