Unchopping a tree / W. S. Merwin ; drawings by Liz Ward

An intimate, beautifully illustrated gift edition of poet laureate W. S. Merwin’s wondrous story about how to resurrect a fallen tree. There’s no mystery to chopping down a tree. But how do you put back together a tree that’s been felled? Mystical instructions are required, and that’s what W. S. Merwin provides in this prose piece. Written with a poet’s grace, an ecologist’s insights, and a Buddhist’s reverence for life, this elegant work describes the difficult, sacred job of reconstructing a tree. Step by step, page by page, with Merwin’s humble authority, secrets are revealed and the destroyed tree rises from the forest floor. Interspersed throughout this inviting, gift-sized edition are Liz Ward’s eleven delicate silverpoint drawings depicting the cellular life of trees.  [description provided by publisher]
