Around the World in 80 Trees

Written by Jonathan Drori

OPL BOOK SUMMARY:  Jonathan Drori brings botany, culture, and history together to weave a love letter to trees in his book, Around the World in 80 Trees. This is a book to settle down and go on a discovery journey. Weaving together information about the tree, history, and how it is connected to us changes you. No longer seeing trees as separate, one finds oneself asking: how is it possible that I missed the connectedness? Soak in the opening of your eyes and tree life and you may find a desire growing in you to visit these trees.

Jonathan’s prose combined with Lucille Clerc’s elegant illustrations invites you on an amazing journey. The book is a joy and we hope you accept the invitation. In doing so, you will learn more about trees and humanity than you ever expected.

Jonathan Drori is a Trustee of the Eden Project which is an educational charity and social enterprise focused on connecting us and the living world. The Eden Project can be visited in England where an aging china clay pit was turned into a group of enclosed biomes to emulate nature with thousands of plants. John is also featured in Ted Talks and many other organizations. For more information, please visit his website.
