Preston introduces listeners to the world of the giant redwoods of California. Interweaving the life stories of several scientists and tree enthusiasts, he provides a loose but compelling history of the last several decades of conservation, focusing on the preservation of these majestic trees. Listeners will be impressed with the way Preston makes trees such an intriguing topic. As narrator, he proves capable of maintaining an animated voice that shifts its tone for the dramatic elements of this book. He also does well in navigating the scientific explanations. Preston's awe of these behemoths permeates his descriptions. L.E. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 08]
