"This book has much to recommend it. Thoughtful, even poetic in places, it covers scientific and medical information thoroughly, and the treatment of history, myth, and folklore makes it a wonderful sourcebook. For this it is worth its space on any shelf."
"The triumph and tragedy of the ash is one of the stories that define our age. Few trees are more beautiful and so bountiful in the number of species they support, and none are so versatile in the uses we have found for it. Parker’s book fills one with admiration for this wonderful tree even as we weep for its fate."
Peter Marren, author of "Rainbow Dust: Three Centuries of Butterfly Delight"
