Description
The coast redwoods and the giant sequoias of California have inspired a body of extraordinary writing. The selections in this anthology, carefully chosen for literary quality, include Native American stories; the first sightings by European explorers; accounts of flourishing logging camps and sawmills; explanations of redwood biology; laments for the trees' passing; and celebrations of their beauty, ecological importance, and the efforts to preserve them. From John Muir and Jack London to Gary Snyder, Joan Dunning, and Julia Butterfly Hill, Giants in the Earth will deliver a beautifully designed and illustrated ode to California's most treasured asset.
