From the Assyrian Tree of Life to the Iroquois peoples’ Tree of Peace, trees have long played an archetypal role in human culture and spirituality. An integral part of a variety of faiths—from Buddhism and Hinduism to Nordic and aboriginal religions—trees were venerated long before any written historical records existed. This sense of reverence and wonder is beautifully evoked in these vivid images from legendary photographer Art Wolfe. The gift format of his celebrated book Trees, this collection focuses on both individual specimens and entire forests, offering a sweeping yet intimate look at an arboreal world spanning six continents. Accompanying these timeless images, author Gregory McNamee weaves a diverse and global account of the myths, cultures, and traditions that convey the long-standing symbiosis between trees and humans, and renowned ethnobotanist Wade Davis anchors the text with a penetrating introduction.
