Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time

Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time
By Beth Moon
Abbeville Press Publishers, 2014. 140 pgs. Nonfiction

Beth Moon has captured stunning images of remarkable trees from around the world. Each one is unique and most grow in remote locations or they would never have survived to become ancient. Two informative but fairly brief essays accompany the beautiful black and white photos which highlight in amazing detail the gnarled trunks and limbs. We have two other beautiful books about trees in our collection that are also a browser’s delight and both are in color: The Life & Love of Trees (2009) by Lewis Blackwell and Thomas Pakenham’s Remarkable Trees of the World (2003).
