Partial Synopsis from Bas Bleu: Around the World in 80 Trees combines botany, history, mythology, even ancient medicine in a fascinating illustrated tour guaranteed to enlighten readers of every ilk!
My Thoughts: One of the reviews for this book notes that it is "beautifully quiet" which I think is a perfect description. Like a soft breeze rustling leaves, these lovely pages bring their reader to a peaceful place of rest. I generally read at bedtime anyway, so I loved drifting to sleep with the knowledge I had just gained about grand trees across the globe.
