Surprise surprise... some of you may know this already. I was fortunate enough to be involved doing the illustrations for 'The Wild Trees'. It was a dream project for me as I'm sure you can understand.
To say the book is a great read is an understatement, even more so for tree climbers. If you go to Richard Preston's web site
you can learn more about the book and listen to excerpts read from the audiobook CD. There's an excellent photo gallery and examples of some of the illustrations as well.
