Winner. Seeing Trees: Discover the Extraordinary Secrets of Everyday Trees. By Nancy Ross Hugo. Photography by Robert Llewellyn. Timber Press, Portland.
Author Nancy Ross Hugo and photographer Robert Llewellyn together have created this unique look at trees complete with exquisite photography. You see aspects of the tree, leaves opening, flowers emerging, cones up close; magnified to reveal minute details that the naked eye often misses. This one of a kind exploration of the world of trees is sure to keep you riveted page by page with a renewed appreciation for the miraculous beauty and wonder of trees.
Seeing Trees is certainly deserving of the recognition awarded it with the 2011 National Outdoor Book Awards.
