This is a book about one man's encounter with an ancient tree.

Professor James Canton spent two years sitting with and studying the eight-hundred-year-old Honywood Oak in North Essex, England. A colossus of a tree, it would have been a sapling when the Magna Carta was signed. Inevitably Canton needs to slow down in order to appreciate it fully. He examines our long-standing dependency on oak trees, and how that has developed and morphed into myth and legend.

The Oak Papers is a stunning, meditative book about the lessons we can learn from the natural world, if only we slow down enough to listen.
