Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In a brilliant combination of lyrical prose and glowing watercolors, acclaimed author/artist Barbara Bash captures the soul of the ancient and sacred banyan, painting a vivid picture of its importance to the people and other life forms that flourish beneath and within its welcoming branches. Both beautiful and enlightening, this book provides a unique glimpse of the interconnectedness of life in a rural culture.

Synopsis:

"A fascinating look at the social, spiritual, and ecological significance of the banyan tree in the life of an Indian village. . . . A harmonius story, written out in calligraphy and warmly, colorfully illustrated."

--Kirkus Reviews, pointer reviews

"At once a work of inspired botanical lore and a portrait of the ageless rhythms of the subcontinent."

--Smithsonian, Notable Book for Children

"The exotic banyan tree teems with life through the day and night, and captivated readers are drawn into the wonderland."

--American Bookseller, Pick of the Lists

"Luminous." --Booklist
