            ~Trees have witnessed the passing centuries, and yet we know little about them. They are
            part of a majestic world brimming with history in which geography, mythology,
            botanical science and literature all intermingle. Did you know, for example, that the French expression langue du bois (literally, “wooden language”) comes from the time of the Russian czars, in reference to the administration’s oak desks? That the original Christmas tree was a spruce? That the French word livre (“book”) comes from the Latin word liber, a plant material that surrounded the trunks of trees and that was used for the first written documents? Using humor, anecdotes and tests of knowledge to question the origins and hidden meanings of over 200 tree names, Henriette Walter and Pierre Avenas reveal the secrets of these surprising living beings.
