The Living Architecture of a Tree - An Excerpt from A Sanctuary of Trees

The Living Architecture of a Tree - An Excerpt from A Sanctuary of Trees

Ratings: (0)|Views: 454 |Likes:
As author Gene Logsdon puts it, “We are all tree huggers.” But not just for sentimental or even environmental reasons. Humans have always depended on trees for our food, shelter, livelihood, and safety. In this latest book, A Sanctuary of Trees, Logsdon offers a loving tribute to the woods, tracing the roots of his own home groves in Ohio back to the Native Americans and revealing his own history and experiences living in many locations, each of which was different, yet inextricably linked with trees and the natural world.
