Fantastic Trees

By Edwin A. Menninger

A remarkable book, of special interest to young naturalists, that presents a rogue's gallery of trees that thrust their roots into the air, produce flowers and fruit underground, tell time, make noises, change sex, commit suicide, or create their own rain. This edition includes updated nomenclature.
