In our rapidly developing world, it's become increasingly difficult to find a spot far enough away from light pollution to take in the unadulterated beauty of the night sky. Ancient Skies, Ancient Trees
saves you the work! When photographer Beth Moon discovered a link between tree growth and cosmic radiation, she set out on a "celestial safari,"
searching for "the darkest places where the oldest trees grew."
The result is this collection of more than fifty spectacular images (five of which unfold to 20½" wide!) of ancient bristlecone pines, junipers, sequoias, oaks, baobabs, and other trees photographed beneath expansive, star-spangled skies in the United States, Great Britain, Italy, Namibia, and Botswana. It's a gorgeous celebration of the natural world. (KG)
