The Lives of Leaves: 50 Leaves, What they Mean, and What They Mean to Us

Available

Description

Leaves are one of nature's marvels. We watch them turn red in Autumn, make medicine from them, invent folklore around them, and mark the passing of time by them.

But how do they grow? Why are they the shapes they are? What makes an evergreen, evergreen?

The Lives of Leaves is a beautifully illustrated compendium of the tales, science and history of leaves from all around the world, from sugar maple and how leaves change colour, to gingko and the history and future of leaves as medicine. It's the story of what they do, what we do with them, and why we can't do without them.
