9780060929428: The Trees in My Forest

The soaring majesty of a virgin forest and the intertwined relationships of plant, animal and man are the subject of Bernd Heinrich's lyrical elegy. Heinrich has spent a lifetime observing the natural world, and now he shares his vast knowledge and reflections on the trees of the Northeast woods and the rhythms of their seasons.

From the DNA contained in an apple seed to the great choiring branches far beyond a young boy's reach, Heinrich explores a natural world in scientific and personal terms. Heinrich is a scientist, but his words speak with the power and subtle grace of a poet. He uses this gift, and his intimate knowledge of his 300 acres of Maine forest, to expose the forest's rhythms and in doing so, illustrates the vital but tenuous link among man, trees, birds, insects and all the creatures of the forest. Thanks to Bernd Heinrich, readers will finally see the forest "and" the trees.

Review:

""The Trees In My Forest" is an engaging primer on the complex biological economics of the woods themselves...It's a quiet walk in stately woods...In Heinrich's hands, the lives of trees are as noble and as dramatic as the lives of men."-- "The Washington Post""These passionate observations of a place 'where the subtle matters and the spectacular distracts' superbly mix memoir and science." -- "New York Times""Heinrich has neatly grafted art to his science giving us a lovely and intimate portrait of the Forest of Adam Hill." -- James Prosek,
author of "Trout" and "Joe & Me"""The Trees in My Forest" is a celebration of observation--an introduction to the mysteries and wonders before us."-- Sue Bender, author of
"Plain and Simple" and "Everday Sacred""He writes with a graceful lyricism...to attract many general readers of natural history."-- "Wall Street Journal""He richly deserves the comparison to Thoreau."-- "Washington Post Book World
