Summary
"William Bryant Logan, a professional arborist and an award-winning nature writer, has put his love for oak to paper, and here relates the history of the relationship between humans and oak trees since time immemorial. Civilization prospered where oaks grew, and for centuries these supremely adaptable, generous trees have supported humankind in nearly every facet of life. With reverence, humor, and compassion, Logan reintroduces the oak tree so that we might see its vibrant presence throughout our history and our modern world."--Jacket
