“This brilliantly written story combines science and trees and climbing into one long adventure that makes the reader happy and brings these great trees to life.” -Seth F., Hall of Fame

#1 NY Times Bestselling and Award-Winning Author

Hidden away in foggy, uncharted rain forest valleys in Northern California are the largest and tallest organisms the world has ever sustained–the coast redwood trees, Sequoia sempervirens. Ninety-six percent of the ancient redwood forests have been destroyed by logging, but the untouched fragments that remain are among the great wonders of nature. The biggest redwoods have trunks up to thirty feet wide and can rise more than thirty-five stories above the ground, forming cathedral-like structures in the air. Until recently, redwoods were thought to be virtually impossible to ascend, and the canopy at the tops of these majestic trees was undiscovered. In The Wild Trees, Richard Preston unfolds the spellbinding story of Steve Sillett, Marie Antoine, and the tiny group of daring botanists and amateur naturalists that found a lost world above California, a world that is dangerous, hauntingly beautiful, and unexplored.

The canopy voyagers are young–just college students when they start their quest–and they share a passion for these trees, persevering in spite of sometimes crushing personal obstacles and failings. They take big risks, they ignore common wisdom (such as the notion that there’s nothing left to discover in North America), and they even make love in hammocks stretched between branches three hundred feet in the air.

The deep redwood canopy is a vertical Eden filled with mosses, lichens, spotted salamanders, hanging gardens of ferns, and thickets of huckleberry bushes, all growing out of massive trunk systems that have fused and formed flying buttresses, sometimes carved into blackened chambers, hollowed out by fire, called “fire caves.” Thick layers of soil sitting on limbs harbor animal and plant life that is unknown to science. Humans move through the deep canopy suspended on ropes, far out of sight of the ground, knowing that the price of a small mistake can be a plunge to one’s death.

When Ben’s estranged twin sister, a police detective, unexpectedly returns to his life, asking too many questions for comfort, it becomes clear that without action, Ben’s life will soon reach a crisis point from which there will be no return.

The Door of Death…

What lies beyond?

Tamara Powell wouldn’t know what awaited her on Marteau Island when she arrived to tutor her old friend’s son.

The locals are wary of her presence on the Island, regarding her with strict and suspicious caution.

Felicia had been insistent, and now seemed distraught. Obviously, she needed comfort … or was it protection?

Who or what lay behind the evil that boldly stalked the remote mansion? Was it Vincent — Felicia’s aloof and strangely enigmatic husband, or Mordecai, the cold and austere family patriarch, who held them suspended before his whims?

Or was it in the very air of the Door of Death, in the ghosts of an unforgotten past?

There can be no answer to the endless questions that surround this mysterious, chilling mansion.

Some secrets, or curses, are perhaps too dangerous to share…

Tamara soon realizes that escaping the Island is no easy task and a strange force is trying to guide her to the truth. Someone, or something, is mercilessly seeking revenge and the haunting sound of death insists on being heard…

Rome 174AD.

As the war continues in the north Marcus Aurelius orders Gaius Maximus and Rufus Atticus to return to Rome. Enemies lurk in the shadows in the capital, spreading propaganda and sowing dissent. The praetorian guards must lure their enemies out – and defeat them.

Yet Maximus is returning home for something, or rather someone, else: Aurelia. The soldier will be caught between his duty and his happiness.

Rufus Atticus will also be forced to make a choice, between the duty he owes to his Emperor and the duty he owes to his family.

Triumph and tragedy may prove to be two sides of the same coin.

The centurions will be caught-up in a web of intrigue – as well as a battle on the streets of Rome – that will decide the fate of Marcus Aurelius and the Empire.
