A wonderful cocktail of extraordinary writing and heartfelt appreciation for the natural world. An essential oddity for any book collection.
In this charming and witty companion, Jack Cooke explores the city through its canopy: teetering on the edge of an oak's branches, scurrying up a Scots pine, spying views from the treetops that few have ever had the chance to see. He takes us through the parks, over the canals and rivers and into secret gardens in his journey sometimes only 10 feet above the street.
Part guidebook, part meditation on the consolations of nature, The Tree Climber's Guide is as uniquely odd, alluring and motley as the trees themselves. It is a journey into the tangle of bark and branches that surround us all and a welcome reminder that the best things in life are free - they just sometimes require a step in the right direction.
The activities discussed in this book can be very dangerous. Any person should approach these activities with caution and appropriate supervision.
