Even the most well-informed nature enthusiasts will be entertained by the stories and fascinating facts in this beautifully illustrated book. Our ancestors were as reliant on and fascinated by trees as we are, but often for different reasons. They planted, cultivated, worshipped and medicated themselves from the trees, and even bestowed magical properties upon them.
Wildlife photographer and history journalist Simon Wills explores the intriguing and at times bizarre stories behind our relationship with the trees. If you enjoy the great outdoors, then this book is full of surprises; whether you simply enjoy learning about nature or are a seasoned environmentalist, this book will intrigue and entertain you.
