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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
'For sheer impact nothing has equalled Thomas Pakenham's photographs, fierce and ethereal' Simon Jenkins, Book of the Year, Sunday Times 'a marvellous collection of photographs... an eminently readable, intelligent book.' Independent 'a book of translucent beauty...' Sunday Times 'entrancing... utterly beguiling...' Mail on Sunday --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

One thing I was disappointed in though, is that this edition was much smaller than the original edition. Such grand trees need to be seen in larger format, and the photography is impressive and deserves the original edition's larger size book.
