I need to read one more biography to settle the last slot in my 12 in 12 goal for reading. I just finished Henry: Virtuous Prince this morning before breakfast, and think I may be going for Six Wives: The Queens of Henry VII. I don’t want to muck about in the library very long today, since I’ve got herb buns on the rise and a busy evening ahead. Are there books you think I should pick up the next time I go?
I’ve got one to recommend: The Wild Trees.
With only a day to spend with the Redwood trees, I was happy to find a way to experience them through words. The book’s structure unfolds with the scientists’ and adventurers’ stories, allowing the reader to experience the mystery, risk, and joy of discovery they felt.
I was sad enough about the schedule, now I wish I’d had far more time with the Redwoods.
