This is a story that spans a millennium and includes a cast of millions. It is the story of a single tree. In this clear, concise, and captivating book, renowned scientist and environmentalist David Suzuki and award-winning writer Wayne Grady describe how the tree grows and receives nourishment and what role the tree plays in the forest throughout its life. Tree also looks at the community of organisms that share its ecosystem, and the tree is placed within the context of the events going on in the larger world during the tree's lifetime. David Suzuki and Wayne Grady's lyrical, richly detailed text is augmented by Robert Bateman's evocative original art. The result is a revelation, a salute to life itself. a href="http://www.greystonebooks.com/book_details.php?isbn_upc=9781553650164">Also available in paperback.
