Tall Trees Short Stories Vol20
Let your imagination grow and prepare for a thrilling silvan adventure in this remarkable multi-genre collection of tree stories. Look out for love and loss, brace for dystopia and utopia, and jump forwards and backwards in time, but beware as you follow the path through the dark forest, nature can have a sting in its tale. Tall Trees Short Stories is a collection of more than 25 extraordinary tales exploring the natural world and our relationship with it, written by environmentalist and celebrated tree author Gabriel Hemery.
Green Gold combines meticulous research with the fictional narrative of plant hunter John Jeffrey’s lost journals, revealing an extraordinary adventure. In 1850 young Scottish plant hunter John Jeffrey is despatched by an elite group of Victorian subscribers to seek highly-prized exotic tree species in North America. An early letter home tells of a 1,200-mile transcontinental journey on foot. Later, tantalising botanical samples arrive from British Columbia, Oregon and California, yet early promise soon withers. Three and a half years after setting out, John Jeffrey disappears without a trace. Was he lost to love, violence or the Gold Rush?
