"Imagine a book about a man who planted trees in an edition that itself comes from a tree, for this magnificent volume is covered with the bark of the mulberry tree. Imagine also an ancient and enchanted land in the south of France. The Vaucluse inspired Jean Giono to write this book and the renowned photographer, Martine Franck, to create five hauntingly beautiful photogravures of scenes from that magical land. Andre Malraux called Giono (1895-1970) 'one of the greatest writers of our generation.' Inspired by God or Pan, perhaps—Giono’s hero in this story expresses humanity’s ancient kinship with the earth and reverence for all living things" (Publisher).
