A captivatingly informative and visually beautiful survey of the tree species that human cultures have found most useful. Each tree species in Trees Of Life is the subject of a concise text centred on a story – or stories – about the tree in question, and accompanied by beautiful photography, illustration and related artefacts.
From the bloodwood to the breadfruit and from the cinchona to the peach, these are trees that offer not merely shelter, timber and fuel but also medicines, dyes, foods and fibres. Max Adams, author of The Wisdom of Trees, has a plethora of fascinating stories to tell about them.
