The Man Who Planted Trees
We have joined the Paul Winter Consort in the release of a CD version of the acclaimed audio of the story by Jean Giono. The original music was composed and is performed by the Paul Winter consort, and the text is narrated by Robert J. Lurtsema, host of “Morning Pro Musica.”
The hero of the story, Elzéard Bouffier, spent his life planting one hundred acorns a day in a desolate, barren section of Provence in the south of France. The result was a total transformation of the landscape-from one devoid of life, with miserable, contentious inhabitants, to one filled with the scent of flowers, the songs of birds, and fresh, flowing water.
Reviews and Praise
"A timeless classic, ideal to read aloud for hope, for love of the green and living world—and for marveling at the resilient beauty of nature."--Branches of Light
More Reviews and Praise
"In Giono's work what every sensitive, full-blooded individual ought to be able to recognize at once is 'the song of the world.'"--Henry Miller --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
