'Baobab'
The largest living thing on the African continent. The photographs in this book have been taken all over Southern and Central Africa, from the arid salt pans of Botswana's Makgadigadi to Namibia's Kaokaveld and the Zambezi valley. It features some of the most remarkable examples of the tree in the extremes of its range, from deserts to waterfalls. The text is a multi-faceted overview that looks at the history, mythology, medicinal properties, practical usage, ritual and cultural associations of a tree that some believe to be the home of spirits.
