A holistic appraisal of 24 of the most common, best-loved trees of Europe and North America, presented with stunningly beautiful paintings, drawings and photographs.
Trees are one of Earth's oldest life forms: silent witnesses to human evolution and the passing of time. Many people today take the presence of trees for granted, unaware of their greater significance in Earth's ecology, their medicinal and nutritional properties, or the veneration bestowed on them by ancient peoples.
The Spirit of Trees captures all these elements in a holistic appraisal of Earth's most influential creation, and will captivate readers through the persuasiveness and passion with which the author portrays his subject.
Fred Hageneder explores how trees both empower, and are energized by, the natural world. He details their affiliations with particular planets, and their connection with electrical currents and magnetism. We see how historical factors have affected the natural distribution and development of tree species, and how ancient Wildwood has been absorbed and altered into the landscapes we recognize today.
The second part of the book concentrates on the relationship of humanity and trees, in terms of the trees' natural assets, our cultural interpretations of the forest and particular trees, and the ability of trees to inspire, soothe and sustain humankind.
