Format: Perfect Paperback Verified Purchase
I found the pictures and information on the Metasequoia in China as well as some information about the most recent expeditions there to be quite interesting. Information about all three of the redwood species was well organized. I enjoyed the book very much. The title is exactly what the book is. The first half of the book is in Chinese and the second half is in English.
