Around the World in 80 Trees

The translucent red resin of Yemen's dragon's blood trees was once prescribed as medicine and used in love potions. The "knees" of the United States's bald cypress trees were repurposed as beehives by Native Americans. The spectacular blossoms of Japan's Yoshino cherry trees embody "mono no aware, which might be translated as 'the poignancy of things'." Around the World in 80 Trees combines botany, history, mythology, even ancient medicine in a fascinating illustrated tour guaranteed to enlighten readers of every ilk! (KG)
