'Hidden Histories: Trees' reminds us of the rich heritage that the trees of the world have to offer. Noel Kingsbury's selection includes not only the trees common to the Northern Hemisphere, such as alder, ash and oak but also more unusual tropical and subtropical trees. He reveals the traditional significance of each of his 100 chosen trees and their contributions to cooking, health and beauty. In exploring the myths and superstitions that have built up around particular trees, he explains how our relationship with the trees that surround us has stood the test of time.
