James Aldred (Author) James grew up on the edge of the New Forest and spent his teenage years exploring it. By fourteen he was building forest shelters and sleeping rough in the woods. By sixteen he was spending much of his time up in the branches. These days, he works in the treetops as an Emmy award-winning wildlife cameraman and has collaborated on many landmark BBC natural history programmes with David Attenborough such as Planet Earth and Human Planet. The Man Who Climbs Trees is his first book.
"A book of heart-stopping bravery and endurance, packed with astonishing-and sometimes gruesome-encounters with wild creatures. James Aldred is an old-school hero, and his thrilling recollections of a life of adventure driven by a love for trees will give you new reverence for the beauties and mysteries of the natural world. " * Helen Macdonald * "A great read - incredible adventures and a dramatic new perspective from the arms of the world's giants" * Chris Packham * "[A] delightful, endlessly fascinating book" -- Brian Viner * Dail Mail BOOK OF THE WEEK * "To leave the dank darkness of the jungle floor and travel up to the sunlight forest canopy is probably the natural world's most exciting revelation. James Aldred's wonderful book is as close as you will ever get to that experience, without risking the climb for yourself." * Alastair Fothergill, TV Producer for `The Blue Planet', `Planet Earth' and `Frozen Planet' * "A heady blend of daredevil ascents with a reflective wonder at the beauty of these living climbing frames" * Derek Niemann, nature writer and journalist *
