"This was even more engrossing than I thought it would be when I came across the title (I know not where). The description of what can be found in the canopy was fascinating, and the narrative, multi-biography style made it an easier read than a lot of non-fiction (which can tend toward the dry).[return][return]I have a new ambition to learn to climb large trees, and to spend the night in a tree. It sounds delightful (the described night during the storm notwithstanding). [return][return]I would highly recommend this to anyone interested in conservation, in botany, in forests, or just in unusual settings. Or anyone who likes rogue scientists, which I think most of these guys would qualify as."
