Description
Mixing the little-known and famous stories of fifty British trees woven into Britain’s history, folklore, art, literature, politics and culture. Fascinating profiles include the original Bramley apple tree in Southwell; the Pembroke ginkgo tree with links to the Japanese navy; the Avebury beech trees said to have inspired Tolkien’s Ents; and the oak trees under which reforming causes, from the Scottish Covenanters to the Abolition of Slavery, have been born. This book is full of intriguing history and spellbinding folklore, including a section exploring the symbolism of thirteen tree species. With colourful illustrations interpreting the trees by contemporary artist Amy Grimes.
