Continuing with the ideas in Bird Watching, this book furthers McCartney's investigation into field guides and nature. Photographs of a figure in the landscape explore the parallels in language used to discuss both aspects of trees and human conditions, illustrating ideas such as tree with broken limb, tree with burl and felled tree. Sturdevant’s narrative addresses topics that include woodland history, Shakespeare gardens, and current American experiences with wilderness.
