Description

“A profound meditation on the human need for connection with nature, as one man seeks solace beneath the bows of an ancient oak tree.”—Peter Wohlleben, author of The Hidden Life of Trees

“Echoes of Walden.”—Kirkus Reviews

This is a book about one man’s encounter with an ancient tree.

Professor James Canton spent two years sitting with and studying the eight-hundred-year-old Honywood Oak in North Essex, England. A colossus of a tree, it would have been a sapling when the Magna Carta was signed. Inevitably, Canton needs to slow down in order to appreciate it fully. He examines our long-standing dependency on oak trees, and how that has developed and morphed into myth and legend. The Oak Papers is a stunning, meditative book about the lessons we can learn from the natural world, if only we slow down enough to listen.
