It is a lovely work and I have to eat my eat words that may have suggested that reading about bark was akin to watching paint dry. I actually find it a more compelling book than 'Trees for the New Zealand Countryside' - bark is on the evidence here extraordinarily poetic, romantic even. The pictures are superb. It's a lovely book and I find it strangely comforting to own a copy.
Letter from a past Katherine Mansfield Scholar, University Writer in Residence and author.
Following on from the remarkably successful 'Trees for the New Zealand Countryside' the Hamilton based Mortimers now produce another exceptional offering. This is a nicely illustrated book about bark - a neglected side of our appreciation of trees, and the text contains a rich storehouse of fact and well-researched anecdotes making truly fascinating reading. The book is going to be around for a long time and will have readers far beyond our shores. Look no further for a Christmas present.
