Very well written & enjoyable book on trees around us. Lovely concoction of facts and stories on common trees. Did you know that the Arabs called a particular tree as date fruit of India? Now we know that tree as Tamarind from Tamar-i-Hind! The chapters on Amaltas and Drumstick are my favorite ones.
