An interesting glimpse into the life of Eliza Scidmore, the woman who campaigned for Japanese cherry trees to be planted in Washington, DC. The book depicts Eliza's uncommon travels, her involvement with the then new National Geographic Society and what happened to the first group of cherry trees sent by Japan. The softness of the illustrations adds a sense of time.
