La vita segreta degli alberi e il loro rapporto millenario con gli esseri umani sono al centro di questo affascinante libro, nel quale l’esperienza personale si fonde con l’analisi scientifica di una delle massime esperte nel mondo. A partire dalle radici fino alle cime vertiginose raggiunte dalle loro chiome, l’autrice ci illustra la vita biologica degli alberi, la loro importanza nell’ecosistema, ricordandoci il ruolo primario che essi hanno assunto nella nostra vita e nella nostra cultura: l’albero è fonte di alimentazione, nel corso della storia ci ha fornito il materiale per costruire le nostre case, ha favorito le scoperte mediche per la cura del nostro corpo, ha ispirato l’arte, la religione, il mito e, soprattutto, continua a essere una inesauribile sorgente di arricchimento spirituale. Per studiare queste meravigliose creature, a cui ha dedicato tutta la sua vita, la biologa Nalini Nadkarni si è arrampicata sugli alberi più alti del mondo e, sospesa a decine di metri da terra, ha scoperto e raccolto informazioni preziosissime, poi riunite in un database che classifica per la prima volta numeri e morfologia delle volte forestali del pianeta, e che le è valso numerosi riconoscimenti da parte della comunità ,scientifica internazionale. «Ho scritto questo libro perché amo gli alberi: la forma, il comportamento, l’odore, i suoni che producono, e amo la sensazione che provo quando ne sono circondata. Quando appoggio ,la mano sul tronco di un albero, mi sento connessa a qualcosa che merita la mia curiosità, la mia attenzione e protezione. La mia speranza è che questo libro possa svegliare, o risvegliare, un senso di meraviglia e rispetto».

When it appeared in 1874, Lady Anna met with little success, and positively outraged the conservative - `This is the sort of thing the reading public will never stand...a man must be embittered by some violent present exasperation who can like such disruptions of social order as this.' (Saturday Review) - although Trollope himself considered it `the best novel I ever wrote! Very much! Quite far away above all others!!!' This tightly constructed and passionate study of enforced marriage inthe world of Radical politics and social inequality, records the lifelong attempt of Countess Lovel to justify her claim to her title, and her daughter Anna's legitimacy, after her husband announces that he already has a wife. However, mother and daughter are driven apart when Anna defies her mother's wish that she marry her cousin, heir to her father's title, and falls in love with journeyman tailor and young Radical Daniel Thwaite. The outcome is never in doubt, but Trollope's ambivalence onthe question is profound, and the novel both intense and powerful.

A bright, science-minded boy goes to the beach equipped to collect and examine flotsam--anything floating that has been washed ashore. Bottles, lost toys, small objects of every description are among his usual finds. But there's no way he could have prepared for one particular discovery: a barnacle-encrusted underwater camera, with its own secrets to share . . . and to keep. Each of David Wiesner's amazing picture books has revealed the magical possibilities of some ordinary thing or happening--a frog on a lily pad, a trip to the Empire State Building, a well-known nursery tale. In this Caldecott Medal winner, a day at the beach is the springboard into a wildly imaginative exploration of the mysteries of the deep, and of the qualities that enable us to witness these wonders and delight in them.
