The Great Wood: The Ancient Forest of Caledon

Jim Crumley


the good wooden of Caledon - the old local wooded area of Highland Scotland - has a name as powerful and deceptive because the wolves that governed it. the preferred photo is of an impassable, sun-snuffing shroud, a Highlandswide jungle infested by means of wolf, lynx, endure, beaver, wild white farm animals, wild boar, and wilder painted males. Jim Crumley shines a gentle into the darker corners of the good wooden, to re-examine a number of the questionable components of its attractiveness, and to evaluate the chances of its partial resurrection into anything like a countrywide wooded area. The ebook threads a course between relict strongholds of local forest, starting with a soliloquy by way of the Fortingall Yew, the only tree in Scotland which can say of the hey-day of the good wooden 5,000 years in the past: 'I was once there.' the adventure is enriched by means of brilliant flora and fauna encounters, a passionate and poetic account that binds the gradual dereliction of the earlier to an confident destiny.
