Ancient Ones: The World of the Old Growth Douglas Fir

A detailed exploration of the old growth forests of the Pacific Northwest, from the moss laden tree top canopy to the vast network of passages deep down in the roots. Readers will witness the widening diversity of creatures that live within the tree as it grows and then dies, topples over and slowly decomposes back into earth. Centuries later, in the aftermath of a forest fire, tiny saplings sprout in the sunlight and the long cycle begins anew.

"A wondrous walk through an old-growth forest. Reading Ancient Ones is truly the next best thing to being there." School Library Journal, starred review
