Tall and sturdy, their leaves gently rustling in the wind, trees form the backbone of life on Earth. They never discriminate between life forms while welding them from the heat or showering them with their bounty. But these providers of life have always been taken for granted, chopped down or burnt to ashes to accommodate the March of modernity. In this book, Ruskin Bond gives a humane touch to these gentle giants, from the legendary Willows, who do more than ‘weep', to the godlike deodars, who are forever trying to reach the heavens to live up to their name. Through captivating quotations, The Trees of Dehra will remind you that endangering these silent chroniclers of the past will endanger the future of our planet too.
