"Dr. Anderson convincingly demonstrates why big old trees loom large in our cultural stories and individual imaginations: they are landmarks, benchmarks through time, and cultural talismans or touchstones... Anderson is an engaging writer who delights in her subject; her enthusiasm is contagious." --Gary Paul Nabhan, Director, Center for Sustainable Environments, Northern Arizona University, Flagstaff
