Beechcombings: The Narratives of Trees

In 1987 the greatest English storm for three centuries laid flat fifteen million trees across southern England. It marked a turning point in our perception of trees and a dawning realisation that they have lives of their own, beyond the roles and images we press them into. Richard Mabey traces the long history of the socialisation of trees, and uniquely he has done this through the lens of just one species; the beech - the greatest casualty of the 1987 storm. The D/J is a little grubby from shelf-wear and there is a tiny nik on the leading edge of the D/J. The top of the text block is lightly tanned. There is light foxing on the rear end-paper.
