Drooping lazily over waterways, shading gardens, guarding hedgerows-the willow tree is a poetically formed plant, but also a practical one. For millennia, the wood of the willow has been used for baskets, furniture, fences, and toys, while finding its place in the watercolors of Monet, Shakespearean tragedies, Hans Christian Andersen, and The Lord of the Rings. Telling the willow's rich and multilayered tale, Alison Syme explores its presence in literature, art, and human history.
