Harvey Green teaches history at Northeastern University in Boston and works in wood at his shop in rural New Hampshire. He is a two-time Fulbright Scholar and the author of three well-regarded books on American material culture.
"Like a walk along a quiet forest rail, reading this book provides
opportunity after opportunity to reflect upon the meaning of trees
and the things that come from them."
- Henry Petroski, author of The Pencil and The Evolution of Useful Things
