This ode to the forest, published in 1965 by a trained botanist with a day job in an advertising agency, crafts a sweeping story of the forests across most of North America embracing science and a deep wonder. Some of the chapters standing alone could stand shoulder to shoulder in a collection of best essays of the century. It is full of interesting facts to ponder and to share with friends. This is one to savor. ( )
