I scavenged this water-damaged old paperback in a discard pile behind my local church, because the concept of a children's fictional biography of an tree seemed too good to pass up.

This is a wonderful story featuring a huge cast of human and animal characters over the 600-year lifespan of a single oak tree in southern England. In addition, it offers lessons about British history and people's relationships with nature.

read this as a child borrowed from the school library, and spent the next twenty years (pre internet) trying to locate a copy, a great story of a young boy who plants an acorn in medieval britain, and we follow all things that pass beneath the tree as its grows into a mighty Oak.
