Great Story -- Tiny, Little, Book Format
The story in the book is fantastic. It is inspiring and may even change your entire outlook if you open yourself up a little.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
BUT this particular version is packaged in a wee, tiny, little book. I'm not kidding, it's really, really small. I think it was designed for leprechauns. The book measures a mere 4 7/8" / 3 7/8". Honestly, it fits entirely within a shirt pocket. It is small.

I have alway loved this story from the first time I read it. I bought this copy for our grandson.
I bought a paperback copy of this story 20 years ago and have read it over and over. I tell people about it all the time. And the book has been passed around the family, to my friends and coworker. The story is being told by a traveler who is writing on his observations and he comes across this man who lives a solitary life in a barren land but goes out each day to make it better by planting trees. As the story goes on you find out why the man lives this way but also his effect on the world and people around him over a period of 30 years. It is a story on how one person who experienced a negitive thing can make positive changes to the world and people around him.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Inspiring and Relevant
This beautiful fictional story, about a man in early 20th century France who replants large desolate areas with trees, is an inspiration. We get a rare glimpse of an uncommon common man who spends a life in selfless work, showing that even small efforts can change the world for the better. And all this while he tended his sheep.
