Content descriptions

General Note:
"Originally published in 2018 under the title Drzewa by Wydawnictwo Dwie Siostry, Warsaw."
"Translated from the Polish Drzewa by Anna Burgess."
Summary, etc.:
Part botany, part history, part cultural anthropology--Trees goes beyond the basics to tell readers everything they might want to know about this particular branch of the plant kingdom. Trees explores the important roles trees play in our ecosystem, takes an up-close-and-personal look at the parts of trees (from roots to stumps to leaves), and unpacks the cultural impact of trees from classification systems (like family trees or data trees) to long-standing myths (like the Tree of Life). Looking forward, Trees also addresses the deforestation crisis. Heavily illustrated in the same style as Bees: A Honeyed History, Trees: A Rooted History serves as a beautifully packaged celebration of trees of all kinds.-- Provided by publisher.
