About this book

Translated from the French by Bray,(B), with wood engravings by Brockway,(H). The classic allegorical story of the French shepherd Elzeard Bouffier who, over a period of forty years, planted acorns on the barren plains of the lower Alps, and so transformed the whole area. Written in the 1950s, the book's message was ahead of its time, inspiring readers to rediscover the harmonies of the wilderness and to prevent its wilful destruction.
