Description


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 leaves), and unpacks the cultural impact of trees from classification systems (like family trees) to art forms (like bonsai trees). 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.

**STARRED REVIEW**
"This expansive volume takes a holistic approach to the topic of trees in nature, history, and the imagination . . . Through the multiangled perspective, Socha and Grajkowski subtly allude to the way that branches of knowledge cross-pollinate and interconnect."

— Publishers Weekly

"Every double-page spread is chock-full of colorful, stylized, eye-catching art . . . The text, confined to one vertical margin per spread, is accessible . . . and it covers a forest of categories."

— Kirkus Reviews

"Drawn with detail and vivid color . . . this book continues the tradition of high-quality nonfiction."

— Booklist
