Summary:

Take an Enlightening Journey with A.T. Mann as he explains how our primal relationship with trees-a central theme in religion, myth, arid culture-has-evolved through the ages. He also discusses the role trees have played in the development of civilization and how they are a disappearing critical resource that must be preserved. By simply running our hand over finely crafted wooden furniture, holding a great tree in our embrace, or even taking natural remedies that come from the trees," writes Mann, "we begin to feel again how important they are for our very being." Book jacket.
