South African Flowering Trees - a botanical adventure through history by Rob Wood

A BOOK TO TREASURE THAT WILL DELIGHT TREE LOVERS
 

Many books are written about trees, but few give a complete picture:

what do they look like? Where do they come from? How do they grow?

What are their uses for man, animals, birds and insects?

How have their names changed over time?

HARD AND SOFT COVER


 


A passionate love affair, a devastating war,
a tragedy with a twist...
 

... a remarkable debut - not least because it is true!
