Before We Stood Tall

From Small Seed to Mighty Tree

La description

Expressive text and art tell the story of the life cycle of trees as it has never been told before — in reverse. Here’s a poetic depiction of the life cycle of trees, told one step at a time, based on newly researched information. In a unique twist, the book highlights the underground network of roots and fungus that connects the forest. Trees and their cycle of life have never been more beautifully — or more lovingly — celebrated.
