189-Interview with the author-A Book of Australian Trees

Show notes

In today’s episode we talk with author Inga Simpson about her latest book and first children’s book, The Book of Australian Trees. Trees tell stories about places and Australia has some of the tallest, oldest, fattest and most unusual trees in the world. As hikers, trees are our constant companions on many of our hikes. While this book is aimed at children, it will also please adults as well and makes a great coffee table book.
