Educators, Students and Others Say . . .

    “Extremely well thought out and tremendously entertaining.  Through a series of remarkable pictures, Dr. Thibault tells a story that is not only fascinating, but educational as well. I am convinced the book will be well receivednot only by children of all ages, but also by adults.”

Michael Cole, author,  Secrets of El Tovar Canyon 

    “Dr. Thibault’s book is full of interesting facts. I never realized trees could live for thousands of years. I also enjoyed the photographs. A few looked spooky.”

Elijah Meisse, Seventh Grade Student 

“I liked the branch with the happy face and the twisted branches . . . I like that the tree is talking to you . . . and how they are reborn . . . and how one tree was born 1500 years before the giant tree . . . ”

Ashley, Kevin, Maribell, Paola, Fifth Graders, Diamond Elementary School, Santa Ana, CA  

    “This book is a masterpiece! The text is “kid friendly” with its comparisons to things children are familiar with. The photography is stunning and reveals the beauty and mystery of these noble trees. The time line is a powerful visual that shows historical world events as the tree matures to its grand old age. A must-have for every family who loves to read and learn about nature’s unique wonders.”    

B. T., Fourth Grade Teacher, Tijeras Creek School

“Truly enjoyed its content and pictures. Readability was most appropriate for elementary students. The book definitely addressed the fourth grade social studies curriculum.”

Kathy Ince, Diamond Elementary School, Santa Ana, CA

  • About the Author

     

    GilbertThibault 

    Gil Thibault (t-bo) has a B.S. and M.A. from   Central Michigan University, Mt. Pleasant, and a Ph.D. in Sociology and Anthropology from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan. He has taught at Detroit Institute of Technology; Wisconsin State University, Stevens Point; Wayne State University, Detroit; Chapman University, Orange, CA; Coast Community College and Irvine Valley College in Irvine, CA.

    California became Gil’s adopted state in 1972 when he moved from Michigan. For the past 36 years Gil and his family have resided in Laguna Beach, CA while Gil was employed as a Broker Associate with Prudential California Realty and Coldwell Banker Real Estate in that city.

    Thibault is an avid hiker, backpacker, photographer, and world traveler. One summer   he backpacked the entire 200+ mile John Muir Trail from nearby Mt. Whitney to Yosemite National Park. Since arriving in California in 1972, he has been a member of the Sierra Club and has participated in many of the Club’s activities.

    An award-winning  photographer, the author has used his photographs to accompany travel articles he has written. While traveling north on California Highway 395 in the summer of 1996 with his young daughter and niece, he discovered the Bristlecone Pine National Forest from just a small road sign in Big Pine, CA. He was amazed by the special beauty, architecture, and longevity of the trees. His desire to write a book about the     Bristlecone Pines stayed subdued, but never went extinct. Finally, in 2010, after years of dreams and recurrent thoughts he decided to write this book, a two-year labor of love.
