5.0 étoiles sur 5 Stunning! Makes you want to daydream under a tree, and pack your bags! 18 juillet 2005

It was just a couple of weeks ago that I went back to visit some of the wisest friends I know, the 4500+ year old Bristlecone Pine trees in California. I had met them a few years earlier, they had comforted me after a death in my immediate family by giving me some perspective. A short while later, I quit my job to travel the world for a couple of years. On that go round, I also visited a grove of tall trees in Redwood National Park - which had some former world record holders. I thought I had seen it all. The oldest, tallest, and in 1997, I had visited General Sherman - the largest (In volume). All of these are noted in the book with glorious photos.

Boy, was I wrong. I recently discovered another tree of distinction, also while in California. A moreton bay fig tree with a crown of 100+ feet, 75 feet tall. Magnificent. I've started to look at registers of trees, and then I found this book.

I've begun to realize there are so many more trees of distinction, and not just the ones he mentions. The author has helped open up my eyes to seeing the world in another different way. His prose, descriptions, and inclusion of historical photos makes for an enjoyable read. I like to repeat - "The true voyage of discovery, is not in going to new places, but in seeing with new eyes." - Proust. The author has succeeded in having that effect on me.

He finds glorious trees in Botswana, Madagascar, Morocco, South Africa / Japan, Sri Lanka, Turkey / France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden / Canada, USA, Mexico / Australia, and New Zealand.

I've had the fortune of visiting 10 of these countries in my life, but other than what I noted earlier, didn't particularly make an effort to seek other trees out. I will now. My list of reasons to travel and re-visit some places is growing. Thank you Mr.Pakenham.

I'm back in the Northwest US now - home of many trees, as I drive or bicycle I pay much closer attention to the friendly giants all around. I'm sure I'll lie down under one of them soon and have that daydream.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 a modest proposal 1 septembre 2014
Par David McCann - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
eyemagine -- i.e., imagine in your mind's keen eye -- an alternative edition presenting: (1) all of the beautiful photos; (2) a modestly expanded introduction, succinctly headlining each photo; and (3) nary a word of the as-is text (that occupies c half of the present volume). the production cost of this alternative book would be very significantly reduced, allowing for a commensurate reduction in price. aobtw, significantly fewer trees would need to be felled. ¶ in short: the text as is adds very little to this splendid collection of photos.

Trees are such wonderful gifts that we have been given. They are truly treasures as the pictures in this book show. Thanks to Thomas Pakenham we can appreciate these magnificent creations even though we can't see them in person. His book is a treasure that I share with my family.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Photography, Great Text, Great Subject Matter. 23 avril 2004
Par USAF Veteran - Publié sur

If you are trying to give a gift to someone who you really like, this book would be ideal - It's that good.
Briefly, this is a book of photographs of 60 trees scattered throughout the world that appeal to the author in some way. The photos are excellent and if you have ever tried to photograph a tree you will appreciate the thought and hard work that went into this book. The author includes photos of the biggest, the oldest, the holiest, and the oddest trees in the world. Ruminating about why he chose these particular trees is as fun as viewing the photos and text. Each photo is accompanied by well-written text that fleshes out the photos with historical, biological, or cultural information regarding each tree and its setting.
I found myself lost in time and space as I read this book and looked at the trees - which is probably what the author intended and why he calls these trees "remarkable".
The only reason I didn't give this book 5 stars is because I read it after I had read Pakenham's first book, "Meetings With Remarkable Trees", which is even richer and better. I'm no tree-hugger but after reading these books I could be tempted.

Provides the specifics of the author's journey around the world to see, photograph, and write about the most world famous trees. Humorous writing in parts and nice sequence of chapters.
