About this book

Following on from the author's previous work, The Spirit of Trees, this volume develops and broadens the study of the relationship between humanity and trees through history, evoking the customs, images and meanings of the forest from the Stone Age to modern times.

'A delightful book to read, well researched, very informative ... really interesting and with plenty of illustrations.' -- New View Magazine 'A concisely written anthropological account of tree-worship across several different ages and civilisations. An impressive breadth of knowledge.' -- Country Life, January 2002 'A fascinating book, well researched and richly illustrated. It deserves to be read by all of us that have an interest in the Tree at the centre of world evolution.' -- Ernst Nef, Camphill Correspondence, June 2002 'A real gift for those interested in the deeper meaning of trees.' -- Scientific and Medical Network Review, April 2002
