Description
First published in the 1950s, these eloquent and entertaining accounts of American trees are culled from two books by Donald Culross Peattie. Each entry delves into the historical and cultural background of these trees, including accounts of how early settlers and Native Americans viewed and utilized them. Peattie also discusses the distinguishing characteristics of the trees in detail, and touches upon the threats to their continued survival. More than 100 of Paul Landacre's original etchings grace this book, which also features an extensive glossary and an introduction by the author of The Rural Life.

"Each of these deeply knowledgeable and beautifully written profiles brings another species vividly to life."ŚMichael Pollan
