Many of us have longed to take a break from urban life, but the sort of peace, seclusion, and direct contact with nature that we seek often feels like it is far away. Londoner Jack Cooke finds this elusive comfort as he explores the city through its canopy—teetering on the edge of an oak's branches, scurrying up a Scots pine, spying views from the treetops that few have ever had the chance to see. A meditation on the consolations of nature and a history of tree-climbing, Cooke's book is also an unconventional guide to such English locales as Kensington Gardens, Regent's Park, Hertford Union Canal, Kew Gardens, and St. Paul's Cathedral Churchyard.
