This book is philosophical in nature, about what is the meaning of life, and how one can leave behind a world better than the one he/she was born into. There is an old man who started planting 100 acorns/day. After several years he started planting seedlings from different trees. After decades, he had completely changed the landscape for the good of mankind. It is a short, thoughtful book.
