Научный писатель Ричард Престон рассказывает об одном из самых огромных живых существ на планете - гигантских деревьях на тихоокеанском северо-западном побережье США. Вырастающие из крохотного семени, они поддерживают обширные экосистемы — причем сами до сих пор являются, в значительной степени, загадкой.
