Reviews

"A handsome guide. . . . The oaks alone will occupy you for days." --New York Times Book Review "Best Books of the Year " "Meticulously illustrated. . . . Coombes's five-pound compendium . . . gets my vote for the book I'd be most likely to take on a hike in the woods, provided I had a pack animal." --Jennifer Schuessler "New York Times " "A handsome guide. . . . The oaks alone will occupy you for days." --New York Times Book Review "Best Books of the Year " "Meticulously illustrated. . . . Coombes's five-pound compendium . . . gets my vote for the book I'd be most likely to take on a hike in the woods, provided I had a pack animal." --Jennifer Schuessler "New York Times " "Clearly, I have lost my head and am swooning under the spell of The Book of Leaves. This big, beautiful, shiny, sumptuous, and informational volume will enhance your appreciation of the natural world, but it does something else as well. It reminds you that wonderful things are often right under your nose. . . . It needs to be spread out on a kitchen table, preferably with a couple of kids hovering nearby, so that yuo can all marvel at the colors and shapes that have been here all along, hidden in plain sight."--Julia Keller "Chicago Tribune " A handsome guide. . . .
