Mythic Woods Summary


Mythic Woods: The world's most remarkable forests by Jonathan Roberts

The planet hosts an extraordinary collection of forest habitats. The rainforests of the Amazon or the Florida Everglades are well known. Many other equally majestic, exotic or beautiful forests are less familiar: the Blue Cedars of the Atlas Mountains, the Cloud forests of the Andes, the Baobabs of Madagascar, the Mangrove swamps of Bangladesh. MYTHIC WOODS explores these enigmatic worlds in lavish photography. The author explores the individual character of each forest and reveals the mysteries hidden within.
