Gnarly Branches, Ancient Trees by Will Hiltz, 2010

Reviewed by: Brian Thompson
Review date: 2012-10-01

bookGnarly Branches, Ancient Trees is a biography of Dan Robinson, a bonsai gardener noted for his naturalistic style. While one could learn much from the examples, this is not a how-to book, but rather a celebration of one man's enthusiasm and perseverance for his art. This led to his establishing Elandan Gardens near Bremerton. His story is well told by the photography and writing of several of his admirers in the local world of bonsai.

Excerpted from the Fall 2012 Arboretum Bulletin.
