Meetings with Remarkable Trees

Meetings with Remarkable Trees - Thomas Pakenham This is a brilliant idea for a book. The subject is not types of trees, or trees in general, but specific individual trees (in the British Isles) which - because of their age and where they are growing- may have witnessed historical events of interest or come in contact with historical persons of interest. I love this kind of work, because it reminds us that the mundane world around us IS extraordinary, it's just that we are asleep to that fact most of the time.
