Robert Bateman, a naturalist and painter, was born in Toronto, Ontario, in 1930. Fascinated by the natural world as a child, inspired by the Group of Seven and encouraged by his parents, Robert developed a painting style that has been internationally lauded, and his work has been exhibited around the world. As an artist, an art and geography teacher and an advocate, Robert has used his renown to promote environmental causes, and in 1999 the Audubon Society named him one of the top 100 environmental proponents of the twentieth century. Robert was made an Officer of the Order of Canada in 1984 and a Member of the Order of British Columbia in 2001. He lives on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

Suzuki and Grady's engaging biography covers 700 years in the life of a Pacific Northwest Douglas fir. Each stage in the tree's life is placed not only within the context of history but also an ecological context . . . This happy melding of history, natural history, and biography is further enhanced by Robert Bateman's fine illustrations to create an instructive and graceful look at the interconnectedness of life. —Booklist


Lyrical, richly detailed, and scientifically eye-opening, Suzuki's text is augmented by Robert Bateman's evocative original art. The result is a revelatory salute to life itself. —Branches of Light


In this slight, lovely book, [Suzuki and Grady] tell the tale of one Douglas-fir tree that lived for more than five centuries. . . . Bateman’s misty drawings offer portraits of the tree’s companions—woodpeckers, eagles, mice, ferns—whose lives are more fleeting . . . This book is both a touching look at a single tree and an articulate testimony to nature’s cyclic power. —Publishers Weekly
