Description
One of France's great writers of the 20th century, Jean Giono was asked by an American publisher in 1953 to write about an unforgettable character. He did not assume this meant a real person, and invented Elzéard Bouffier, a farmer of Provence who, after the loss of his family, began to plant 100 acorns every day. Over several decades this simple man reforested a wasteland, bringing the entire region back to life. Giono's extraordinary short story went on to inspire reforestation efforts all over the world, including the Plant for the Planet: Billion Tree Campaign, a worldwide planting initiative of the United Nations Environment Program. It is presented here in a lovely chapbook edition on cream stock with joyful ink and conté drawings.
