The Wild TreesRead about another book on the list.
by Richard Preston
The most adventurous explorers of our age may well be the tree climbers -- botanists and amateur naturalists -- who have discovered the unexpectedly rich ecosystem (to say nothing of the awe-inspiring beauty) suspended in the canopy at the tops of Californian redwoods. Preston tells their exciting and surprising story.
The Wild Trees is one of Michelle Nijhuis's 15 green books to take to the beach.
