A perfect balance of memoir and scientific explanation, Professor Miyawaki shares the wisdom he learned from his life-long study of potential natural vegetation in this book. Starting from his childhood in Okayama to his last project of creating a “forest seawall” along the Tohoku coastline, Professor Miyawaki discusses a variety of topics, including how he developed the revolutionary Miyawaki Method. Although many of the examples are based in Japan, the message is universal, and the book is a must-read for those who seek a deeper insight into what the method can achieve.
