This book tells the story of the wild ginkgo tree, from the eyes of a native, who grew up at the foot of Mount Tianmu, East China, where wild ginkgos have been flourishing for hundreds of millions of years.
Among a team of advisors of scientists is Professor Zhou, member of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, who discovered the oldest ginkgo fossil in 1989. Through his studies, he found the missing link along the Ginkgo’s long evolutionary history.
The highly acclaimed book covers both the ecological and cultural history of gingkos. It is edited by an American Ecologist and a science writer and proofread by a British professional Tree surgeon.
To know more about ginkgos is to know more about nature, and to know more about the most important issue for all life - how to survive, especially during the pandemic time.
Pay tribute to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
“This is a beautiful and wonderfully complete body of work. I will take time to go through and read thoroughly, it truly deserves time to absorb and reflect. I would love to see this work being showcased in our garden and to be enjoyed by others who appreciate the nature and lore of ginkgo.”
—Kevin Frediani, Curator of Botanic Garden at University of Dundee, United Kingdom
“It is impossible to pigeonhole this book into any one category. A sensitive blend of the sciences, humanities, and arts, a most remarkable tree is brought to life through spectacular photos and engaging text. At a time of so much biodiversity loss, I wish every species could have a Jimmy Shen, someone to tell its story with admiring words and inspiring images. I have always been fascinated by the ginkgo. I now have many more reasons to be.”
—Quentin Wheeler, President, College of Environmental Science and Forestry, The State University of New York
