The Origin and Cultivation of Shade and Ornamental Trees, Hardback Book

The Origin and Cultivation of Shade and Ornamental Trees Hardback

Description

Even before the Hebrews passed on their legend of the tree of knowledge, humans were collecting seeds and striplings from trees for shade, to cultivate fruit, and to worship as deities of natural forces.

In Shade and Ornamental Trees Hui-Lin Li traces this relationship across the continents and over time to relay an organic history of the world's civilizations.
