Trees are one of Earth's oldest existing life forms and silent witnesses to human evolution and the passing of time. Many people today are unaware of their significance for the Earth's ecology, as well as their medicinal and nutritional properties or the veneration bestowed on them by ancient peoples.
This book captures all these elements in an inspiring holistic appraisal. Hageneder looks in detail at twenty-four of Europe's and North America's best-loved trees: their physical characteristics―their healing powers, traditions associated with them, and how they have inspired humankind through the ages.
The Spirit of Trees is beautifully illustrated with black and white photographs and illustrations.
