Summary
This is the story of a professional British tree climber, cameraman and adventurer, who has made a career out of travelling the world, filming wildlife for the BBC and climbing trees. James's climbs take him around the globe, scaling the most incredible and majestic trees in existence: the strangler fig tree of Borneo, the monolithic Congolese moabi tree, the fern-covered howler tree of Costa Rica and the colossal mountain ash of Australia. On the way he meets native tribes and jungle cats, he gets stung by African bees and chased by gorillas, and he spends his nights in a hammock pitched hundreds of feet up in the air, with only the stars above him. This book blends incredible stories of his adventures in the branches and a fascination with the majesty of trees to show us the joy of rising - literally - above the daily grind, up into the canopy of the forest
Summary
Meet the man who climbs trees for a living. Whether he's scouting out the perfect canopy shot for the BBC, or just looking for a little fun, James Aldred has climbed scores of behemoth trees. In this adventure memoir, Aldred carries us with him across the globe and up to the top of these towering forest titans as he recalls his most memorable encounters with trees and their inhabitants.--
