Publisher Comments:

To commemorate Chelsea Green Publishing's anniversary of the cloth-bound edition of Jean Giono's classic tale we proudly present a paperback edition with added information on how to become a WoodWise consumer.
Jean Giono's tale of Elzéard Bouffier, the intrepid tree planter who single-handedly reforests a barren section of southern France, is here placed in an exciting new context. In addition to creating new forests by tree-planting, we can have a direct effect on their survival through our prudent use of wood products.
This special edition has been prepared with the assistance of Co-op America, a nonprofit organization whose WoodWise campaign protects our forest resources by raising consumer awareness of alternatives to wasteful consumption. A supplemental chapter provides information, suggestions, and tips. Readers will find the tools to locate sources for tree-free paper, tackle unwanted junk mail, conserve at home and the office, and recognize environmentally sound wood products. Responsible actions such as these will contribute directly to the conservation of sustainable forests.
The original, cloth-bound edition of The Man Who Planted Trees with Michael McCurdy's glorious woodcuts was published by Chelsea Green in 1985, and remains in print. We also offer products, including notecards, videos, and audiotapes, inspired by Giono's story.

About the Author

Jean Giono, the only son of a cobbler and a laundress, was one of France's greatest writers. His prodigious literary output included stories, essays, poetry, plays, filmscripts, translations, and over thirty novels, many of which have been translated into English. Giono was a pacifist, and was twice imprisoned in France, at the outset and end of World War II. He remained tied to Provence and Manosque, the little city where in 1895 he was born and in 1970 died.
