Birch by Anna Lewington( Book )

5 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Elegant and beautiful, rich in history and supremely useful, birches have played an extraordinary yet largely unrecognized part in shaping both the natural environment and the culture of millions of people around the world. Tough, waterproof and flexible, birch bark has been used for everything from basketry and clothing to housing and transport, musical instruments and medicines, as well as a means to communicate and record sacred beliefs: some of our most ancient Buddhist texts and other historic documents are written on birch bark. Birches have not only shaped regional cultures -- creating, for example, the Native American wigwam and the birch-bark canoe -- but continue to supply raw materials of global economic importance today. 'Birch' explores the multiple uses of these versatile trees as well as the ancient folklore with which they are associated. Richly illustrated, this book presents a fascinating overview of birch's cultural and ecological significance, from botany to literature and art, as Anna Lewington looks both at the history of these trees and what the future may hold in store for them." --
