A rather detailed, clearly written, interest encouraging, sympathy and curiosity driven book - a delight to read. Sometimes I was a little exasperated with length and the detail, such as that of the part about pines and oaks near the end, and also because he made so many references to so many species of trees that I am nearly totally ignorant about (I know what a maple looks like, but not their varieties; I know a birch, white pine (but not the varieties of pines and spruces), and that's about it). Nonetheless, it encouraged me to clear away my ignorance and plant the seeds of knowledge.
