The Once and Future Forest: California's Iconic Redwoods
In commemoration of Save the Redwoods League's 100th anniversary, Heyday is proud to present a book that showcases both the grandeur of the redwood ecosystems that sustain California and the deep love they have engendered in scientists, writers, artists, and the general public. At the heart of this celebration are five new essays by Gary Ferguson, David Harris, Meg Lowman, Greg Sarris, and David Rains Wallace. These pieces discuss a multitude of topics, including the fascinating science of redwoods, the League's history of redwoods conservation, and the big trees' significance to indigenous cultures; but what unites the essays aside from their theme is awe. In evoking the big trees as natural cathedrals wreathed in misty canopies, readers will be inspired to protect these majestic beings and to look for a more ecologically informed future. The volume itself is a luxurious objet of book arts: protected by a foil-embossed slipcase, this clothbound hardcover is constructed of the highest quality materials and features over 175 full-color images.
