Synopsis: After the worldwide success of his previous work, MEETINGS WITH REMARKABLE TREES - a stunning collection of 60 individual trees (and groups of trees) in Britain and Ireland chosen for their unusually strong personalities - Thomas Pakenham decided to hunt down and photograph another 60 remarkable trees scattered throughout the globe for REMARKABLE TREES OF THE WORLD. Now, for the very first time, Thomas Pakenham's complete ten-year tree odyssey is available in a beautiful two-book presentation slipcase. The perfect gift for all those who marvel at the wonders of nature.
Review: Thomas Pakenham, a distinguished historian of Africa, takes a new tack by writing an old-fashioned kind of book: a catalog of trees of the British Isles. The last such book was published in 1826. In Meetings with Remarkable Trees Pakenham assembles a beautifully photographed gallery of 60-odd trees of Scotland, England, and Ireland, and magnificent trees they are. One is a 600-year-old king oak that looms large over Charleville, Ireland; another is the yew tree that Wordsworth called the "pride of Lorton's vale"; still another is a sequoia brought from the United States and planted in a Herefordshire grove in 1851, where it has since flourished. Pakenham helpfully includes a map showing the locations of his scattered dramatis personae; you could make a fine tour retracing his steps and having a look for yourself.
