Abstract:

"Acclaimed naturalist photographer B.A. King presents a poignant photographic memorial to the magnificent Northern Red Oak that presided over his family and home in Southborough, Massachusetts. Almost 400 years old, the oak became a wise and comforting touchstone for the lives that grew up beneath its low, welcoming branches, Compiled from over thirty years of photographs taken at all times of day, in all kinds of weather, these images are testament to the tree's rich role in the rituals of family life - marriages, lazy afternoons, children at play - carried out in and around the majestic oak.

Lovely and elegiac, this book is a powerful meditation on transience and inheritance revealed through the deep connection between a family and the surrounding natural world."--Jacket.
