Trees; the balance of life, the beauty of nature.
In this translation of the 2009 edition, a writer/ethnobotanist who lives in Provence, Southern France, waxes elegantly about the anatomy, life cycle, species, uses, and ecology of those "green jewels" with which humans have a complex relationship. The book includes lovely full and two-page images of conifers, broad-leaved, and woodless trees (e.g., palms, cacti, bamboo), and a glossary. Distributed in North America by Sterling.
