The Man Who Climbs Trees by James Aldred

This is a simple book unadulterated by stylistic twiddles or literary device. It is a love letter to trees and the natural world as a whole. These are the  stories of the monster trees that James climbs to prepare the way for and assist National History filmmakers get the very best vantage points for their programmes.

 James endures weather and even insect infestation of his very flesh to climb these dangerous trees,so that masters of Natural History such as the Greatest TV naturalist alive, Mr David Attenborough himself!

It is a book of  passionate dedication and the pure joy he experiences when in the canopy. It was a glorious book for anyone who loves to travel vicariously and see the wonders of the world from above.
