Ancient Ones: The World of the Old-Growth Douglas Fir - Barbara Bash
Along with Tree of Life: The World of the African Baobab, Desert Giant: The World of the Saguaro Cactus, and In the Heart of the Village: The World of the Indian Banyan Tree, this is another installment in Barbara Bash's excellent 'Tree Tales' series. I absolutely love, love, love Desert Giant and Tree of Life. This one is good, but I can't say I loved it quite as much. It seemed a bit drier than the other titles, but still it's a nice book. - beautiful illustrations and tons of interesting information. I think it would be particularly nice if you had access to one of these old-growth forests.
