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.

Soo precious! A Fantastic Book with a huge gallery of pictures and documents. Cachuma Press prints very good books! If you desire to know about Natural History of "Sequoia sempervirens", its discovery, exploitation and consecutive protection by Humans.
