Not only showcases the trees, but in more than 200 color photographs reveals the immense diversity of . . . the forest. -- Sierra (magazine), May/June 2002

Other books feature giant trees . . . but this volume celebrates a single species . . . in a way that is unrivaled in publishing. -- Crossosoma:Journal of the Southern California Botanists, Fall/Winter 2003

The authors have ... made the natural and cultural history of coastal redwoods exciting and accessible to ordinary folks. -- Econews:Newsletter of the Northcoast Environmental Center October, 2001

The breadth of coverage is exceptional, and the fine photographs on every page illuminate the text with beauty and clarity. -- California Coast & Ocean (magazine), Spring 2002

The text is exemplary . . . Naturalists and redwood lovers of all types will find this book to be essential. --Fremontia (journal), January 2002

Format: Paperback
Novices and academics alike will want copies for their libraries.
This is the first contemporary book that outlines the complete natural and cultural history of the world's tallest tree the Coast Redwood, Sequoia sempervirens. This book makes the most up-to-date scientific information about the trees, their ecology and associated wildlife, accessible and exciting to ordinary folks.
The authors tell the story of these remarkable trees, their logging, the emotions they have inspired, as well as the past- and present-day battles to preserve these forests in an easy to read, balanced manner.

I grew up in the redwood region and am just now getting more interested in these trees. This is the book that gives me all the information I would want, and the bonus prize is the photography. It is thorough without being boring. I am well past the time of life where I must plow through a book because I have to.

I gave it a 5 of 5 starts simply because I have not finished the book yet!

I bought this as a gift and I know it's my fault for not reading the description, but I thought it was a "coffee table" type book in hard back. I chose hard back on the left side of the screen, but when I didn't get the choices I wanted, I retyped the search words at the top of the screen and didn't realize the choices on the left side of the screen cleared out when you did that.

The person I bought it for owns over 300 acres of Redwood forested land near the Redwood National Park. She seemed to like it, but she may have just been being polite.

To me personally after visiting the Northern California Redwoods described in this book, it is right on target.
However I had to go buy the book locally from a merchant as I needed the book soon for my trip.
This is where the problem came in. I AM STILL WAITING FOR AMAZON TO GET OFF THEIR ASS AND SHIP MY BOOK.
AFTER FOUR DAYS THE ONLY INFORMATION I RECEIVED FROM THEM WAS "SHIPPING SOON"

Yep I ordered it from Amazon, Never do this ,order it from an individual book seller. This concludes my review.
the book is great Amazon shipping SUCKS.
