Trees: The Balance of Life * The Beauty of Nature by Pierre Lieutaghi
The old saying has it wrong: all too often we see the forest, but don't begin to appreciate the unique qualities of the trees. With 90 stunning photos from around the world, Trees celebrates these awe-inspiring gifts of nature. This extraordinary book sets the record straight, looking at trees from many points of view-their 300 million-year natural history; their usefulness; their incredible beauty; their role in mythology and religion; and their importance to life on earth. No one who reads Trees will ever take them for granted again.
