THE WILD TREES: A STORY OF PASSION AND DARING, PRESTON, RICHARD
65 PRESTON, RICHARD THE WILD TREES: A STORY OF PASSION AND DARING
Random House Trade Paperback 2008 0812975596 / 9780812975598 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Hidden away in foggy, uncharted rain forest valleys in Northern California are the largest and tallest organisms the world has ever sustained-the coas t redwood trees, Sequoia sempervirens. Ninety-six percent of the ancient re dwood forests have been destroyed by logging, but the untouched fragments t hat remain are among the great wonders of nature. The biggest redwoods have trunks up to thirty feet wide and can rise more than thirty-five stories a bove the ground, forming cathedral-like structures in the air. Until recent ly, redwoods were thought to be virtually impossible to ascend, and the can opy at the tops of these majestic trees was undiscovered. In The Wild Trees , Richard Preston unfolds the spellbinding story of Steve Sillett, Marie An toine, and the tiny group of daring botanists and amateur naturalists that found a lost world above California, a world that is dangerous, hauntingly beautiful, and unexplored.

They take big risks, they i gnore common wisdom (such as the notion that there's nothing left to discov er in North America), and they even make love in hammocks stretched between branches three hundred feet in the air. The deep redwood canopy is a vertical Eden filled with mosses, lichens, spotted salamanders, hanging gardens of ferns, and thickets of huckleberry bushes, all
