First four pragraphs of introduction: A grassy lane branches off from the dusty road. Our eyes, half-closed against the glare of the July sun, pass over the yellowing green to come to rest where it ends in shade. A wave of damp scented air stirs in the heat-it is the forest breathing its freshness out into the open country, weary with ripening under the summer sun. We wander silently beneath the trees, relaxing and letting our gaze rest on the deep green shade. In the tree-tops swarms of winged insects are buzzing, birds are calling among the branches, and the further we go the more often do we see narrow paths and tracks beaten out by woodland animals. The forest is always full of life. In its green shade there is always something budding, growing, being born, loving, fighting and dying. When night falls some creatures go to sleep and others awake. The pulse of life in the forest never slackens. Winter sudbues it for a while, but even in the deepest snow and hardest frost we can find traces of life waiting for spring and summer to grow to its full power. The noble beauty of centuries-old trees, the serene calm with which they have been growing on the same spot for hundreds of years, and the strength with which they stand up to wild storms, all helped to arouse man's awe. The legends of giant hollow trees offering a refuge to the hunted sprang from wonder at the great girth of trees. In ancient times people connected the forest with secret dread, and worshipped aged trees. The force of the eternal round of life seemed to gleam from the deep shadows of the forest and exert its power even over man
