    Highly recommended - You will want to share this with friends.

    This thoroughly researched but sparsely annotated historical 'novel' sends the reader through time in the companionship of of the leafy inhabitants of our forests, cities and gardens, some the oldest living inhabitants of earth. We learn why trees have been our faithful servants and were principal factors in the siting of cities, the outcome of great naval wars, and even the colonization of America. Our dependence on trees, even today, and human society's voracious appetite for wood and wood products and the habitats where trees hang on to species survival are laid out in a fascinating series of vignettes that you will want to share. This is an educational, eye-opening, but most of all fun read.

    This unusual book documents an element of history that few know

    This unusual book documents an element of history that few know and certainly is not taught in college. This superb book tells the story of trees in American history and how they affected American social, cultural, economic and political life of Americans from our first settlers up to present day. I found this fascinating tale superbly written filled with intriguing anecdotes of famous and not so famous Americans. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in American history and loves to learn about less recorded incidents and a dimension of our country less known.
