Just in from New Zealand: the special edition book “The Man of the Trees, and Other Dedicated Environmental Guardians”, by Catriona Baker. This fascinating book is an insight into the life and work of the late Dr Richard ‘St. Barbe’ Baker, ITF’s founder.
Sadly, Catriona herself passed away in November last year at the age of 97, but was determined to fulfill her long–held ambition to publish this tribute to her husband before her health failed her.
The book includes numerous photos and documents, tracing the life and ideas of Dr Richard Baker and those who supported him. The final chapter is dedicated to those continuing to keep his vision alive around the world.
Celebrating the 90th anniversary of the International Tree Foundation, this special edition includes a chapter on the history of ITF (and Men of the Trees) from our Chief Executive, Andy Egan. The price is £42 including postage and packing. £10 from every copy sold will go directly towards our new Centenary Campaign to plant 20 million trees in Mount Kenya Forest.
