New Book To Read Over Xmas

Recommended Posts

Been looking for a new book ref Forest to read over Xmas and beyond if necessary and found this fab book call”WOODLANDS” by Oliver Rackman it came on monday and had a quick look to start off and then I couldn’t put it down,it’s a fabulous book and so well written and I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in every aspect of how our forest and woodlands live and breath and it covers everything and I will be looking forward to cosy nights in with a hot chocolate and Weaver curled up at my feet reading this lovely book.🐶🤓

Fantastic book and author who sadly passed in 2015, his earlier books opened my eyes to the culture and social history of woodlands and how our attitudes have changed over the years to using and managing the resource.

Absolutely Anno and think this book is even more relevant now as at any other time in mankind’s history,not to get to heavy because I believe the worlds climate has fluctuated over millions of years and some things happening climate wise is a natural progression,but without doubt the human race has tilted it into a different direction timewise.wow listen to me and just a simple guy who knows nothing much about anything really,just goes  to show what you read has an influence on the way we think🤔

Just a update on the book which I have just started to read and just to say i’am not a great reader of books and the last one I did read was Damed Utd.

This book however is quite brilliant and anyone who has the slightest interest in trees or just wants something to read which is stimulating I suggest you give this book a go,it’s quite a big read and will take me a good while to get through it but already i’am gaining a lot more insight into the world of trees and everything else that they bring and give to us.Please forgive my grammar and spelling i’am not the greatest wordsmith but am sure you get the basics of how i’am trying to portray what this fab book is about.D504E3B5-4B68-4BE4-9B7C-8099CA5920E9.thumb.jpeg.6a1ee5181bcf16211c68a352a023c767.jpeg

 

     QUITE A CHUNKY BOOK SO WILL TAKE ME SOMETIME TO READ
