&i;The Living Wisdom of Trees&o; is a richly illustrated guide to the human significance of 55 trees, looking in particular at their botanical characteristics, their place in world myth, magic and folklore, the healing properties of their leaves, bark, nuts or berries, and (more briefly) their practical contribution to society. The coverage is broad - including native cultures such as those of North America and Oceania, and eastern trees such as the bo tree, sacred to Buddhism, as well as trees within the mainstream cultural traditions of America and Europe.
For each genus featured there is one or more superb colour photographs from the unrivalled collection of photographer Edward Parker, showing the tree in its typical habitat.A unique celebration of nature and spirit and the fascinating connections between them, as well as an invaluable work of reference by an acclaimed expert, "The Living Wisdom of Trees" is for all who seek acquaintance with the fascinating lore and the profound spiritual wisdom of trees.
