Canongate Books Ltd, 2002. 1841954411 2002 1841954411 / 9781841954417 1st Edition Soft cover Fine Book 
Paperback, Fine condition. First edition, pp xi, 292, b&w illustrations, bibliography, note, appendices index. Ancient oakwoods, thickets of shimmering birches or lonely clumps of gnarled Caledonian pine all count among the most atmospheric and inspiring places in Scotland. This is a winning portrait of the forests as we encounter them today, and their part in Scotland's story: from the Ice Age to the great woodlands imagined by the planting Dukes of Atholl and the blanket spruce plantations of the post-war years. Eloquently written with a blend of myth and archaeological evidence, vivid glimpses of the great personalities and a taste of environmental and economic controversies, Landscapes and Lives is a book as rich and memorable as the forests themselves. S10.
