Summary
Trees are one of humanity's most constant and most varied companions. From India's sacred banyan tree to the fragrant cedar of Lebanon, they offer us sanctuary and inspiration -- not to mention the raw materials for everything from aspirin and silk to space shuttles and telephone lines. In this book Jonathan Drori uses plant science to illuminate how trees play a role in every part of human life, from the romantic to the regrettable. Each of these strange and true tales -- populated by self-mummifying monks, tree-climbing goats and ever-so-slightly radioactive nuts -- is illustrated by Lucille Clerc, taking the reader on a journey that is as informative as it is beautiful
