Reviews
"Andrew Mathews tells an important story, tracing the trajectory of a human-managed landscape across recent centuries into our Anthropocene era of climate change. But he also shows us the role of story-telling and of other ways of learning, knowing, and communicating, offering new directions for action at this time of pressing challenges."--Ben Orlove, author of Lines in the Water: Nature and Culture at Lake Titicaca

"Trees are Shape Shifters is original and rich, a fertile blending of local, place-based research with considerations of the global issue of climate change: the planet through the Tuscan landscape"--Marco Armiero, President of the European Society for Environmental History

"A beautiful story of how peasants' care and practices held Italian hillsides together, how abandonment makes them literally fall apart, and how history can be traced through a tree stump."--Marianne Elisabeth Lien, Department of Social Anthropology, University of Oslo
