In Search of Remarkable Trees
Available in Stock
The author and photographer Thomas Pakenham is no stranger to Africa or to trees. In this beautifully crafted volume, he combines his two interests as he travels through Zambia, Botswana, Namibia and South Africa in search of extraordinary trees, from giant baobabs and gnarled, ancient camphor trees to graceful jacarandas. The text that accompanies each image recounts his adventures and reflects on the role of trees in magic, folklore and ritual.
