Good News vs King Sequoia

Blog, books

I tried to read the Good News book but it wasn’t my kind of thing. It’s frequent, flippant, smart-alecky asides put my teeth on edge. The ‘feel good’ case-studies too much of one-off esoteric examples.

Then I started King Sequoia which turned out to be the ‘much needed tonic’ the other book had promised to be. A history of how one tree species enchanted people so much, it actually became a reason for the founding of national parks and forest conservations. (I’ve been lucky to stand under a King Sequoia. It’s an experience I’ll always remember with wonder.)

A recommendation for all history buffs, non-fiction readers who like nature and trees.
