Celebritrees PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Celebritrees free pdf Some trees have lived many lifetimes, standing as silent witnesses to history. Some are remarkable for their age and stature- others for their usefulness. A bristlecone pine tree in California has outlived man by almost 4,000 years- a baobab tree in Australia served as a prison for Aboriginal prisoners at the turn of the twentieth century- and a major oak in England was used as a hiding place for Robin Hood and his men (or so the story goes ).The fourteen trees in this book have earned the title "Celebritrees" for their global fame and significance. Both in fact and in legend, these fascinating trees remind us not only how much pleasure trees bring, but what they can tell us about history."
