About this book

The African Baobab is a revised and expanded edition of a book originally published in 2007. In this absorbing and inspired account of one of the continent's oldest botanical wonders, Rupert Watson explores the life and times of the majestic baobab, an ancient tree that has outlasted every plant and animal around it. The narrative effortlessly blends natural history and personal observation, while also drawing on extracts from the journals of early explorers. There are intriguing accounts of the baobab's eccentric growth and reproductive habits, its present-day distribution, and its wide impact on everyday African life. Watson also takes a close look at the relationship between humans and baobabs, and the tree's myriad uses over the ages, from shelters to medicinal and spiritual applications.

This new edition is aimed at nature lovers, environmentalists, botanical enthusiasts, travellers and anyone intrigued by the wonders of plants and the natural world.
