The world's most dramatic trees, many of which are in danger of destruction, are lyrically described and beautifully photographed in this homage to their majesty and variety. Owing little to conventional botany, this collection is arranged according to the characters of the trees themselves: giants, dwarfs, Methuselahs, shrines, dreams, lovers, dancers, ghosts, and trees in peril. Located in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand, the 60 featured trees are often beautiful, sometimes sad, and always awe inspiring. Los árboles más espectaculares del mundo, algunos de los cuales corren serio peligro de desaparecer para siempre, son investigadas y retratadas en esta colección dramática. El libro tiene poco que ver con las obras de botánica convencionales, sino el criterio seguido viene marcado por los propios rasgos característicos de los árboles: gigantes, enanos, Matusalenes, santuarios, sueños, amantes, bailarines, espectros, y arboles en peligro. Se obsequia al lector unas maravillas de la naturaleza con prosa y fotografías de calidad excepcional. Originando de Europa, America Norte, Australia, Africa, Asia, y Nueva Zelandia, los arboles son a veces lindas, a veces triestes, y siempre imponentes.
