Mark Cocker, The Times Literary Supplement * "There is no talk of hugging trees in the extraordinary little book, Oak: The Frame of Civilization, but I feel sure that Logan is a tree-hugger." Stephen Anderton, Literary Review * "A dazzling book, full of knowledge and rare wisdom, too." Thomas Pakenham"
