Description
Treaties have been signed, justice dispensed, and the seeds of the American Revolution sown under trees. Some trees have lived for hundreds, even thousands of years, standing as silent witnesses to history. Depicted in painted cartoons, the 14 famous trees in this book for readers 7 and up have earned the title "Celebritrees," including Methuselah, a bristlecone pine in California that has outlived its namesake by almost 4,000 years; the Bodhi Tree of Sri Lanka, planted 2300 years ago by a king; and the thousand-year-old Major Oak in Sherwood Forest, a legendary hiding place for Robin Hood and his men.

"This picture book gallery of impressive trees, illustrated in friendly folk-art style, offers substantive information on what makes each specimen unique."Horn Book Magazine
