The Man Who Planted Trees is not a detailed how-to guide to planting; it is a touching story of Elzéard Bouffier, who devoted his entire life to reforesting a desolate portion of Provence, in southern France. He single-handedly planted 100 acorns each day before, through, and after two world wars, and transformed a sorrowful place into one full of life and joy. Jean Giono's words offer a tribute to how much good one person can accomplish in a lifetime and advise on how to live life with deep meaning. Illustrated with moving, beautiful wood engravings by Michael McCurdy, The Man Who Planted Trees is simply written but powerful and unforgettable. The text is also available on tape, eloquently narrated by Robert J. Lurtsema and accompanied by music from the Paul Winter Consort. --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
"A timeless classic, ideal to read aloud for hope, for love of the green and living world—and for marveling at the resilient beauty of nature."--Branches of Light
"In Giono's work what every sensitive, full-blooded individual ought to be able to recognize at once is 'the song of the world.'"--Henry Miller --This text refers to the Paperback edition.--This text refers to the Audio CD edition.

A re-assuring, peaceful, wonderful story with a simple, unforgettable message.
This wonderful tale has been reviewed by professionals so I won't attempt it. I can, however, share the memory of my neighbor and state that this book is a pleasure to read.
Clearly the work of a master of his craft who well understands the matters about which he writes.
It's the sort of book you'd like to read again; a book you should read to,your grandkids
You won't be sorry you bought this book.
