Paintings From: The Untouchable Tree
Peter C. Stone's The Untouchable Tree, An Illustrated Guide to Earthly Wisdom & Arboreal Delights (Nature/Art) is a provocative and visually glorious book about the living wisdom of common trees in North America.
Appealing to the layman, average gardener, or practiced horticulturalist, The Untouchable Tree celebrates fascinating forests, groves, and solitary specimens that reveal illustrative, historical, and mythological symbols and enable us to see familiar things with fresh eyes. These are derived from Mr. Stone's lectures and workshops, pointing out that we can actually learn from trees to think outside our cultural box and question our inextricable relationship with the environment.
The book's evocative observations and probing questions will interest and stimulate artists and scientists, children and adults. It also provides educators with curriculum-supporting materials to enrich their courses in the humanities and science disciplines.
Educators will find The Untouchable Tree's sample questions and notes about the paintings and trees useful for classroom activities and lessons in a range of subjects: Science (Biology, Physics, Ecology) and Geography, English and Creative Writing, Art and History, Conservation, Horticulture, Nature, Native Studies, Social Studies, and Mythology.
