M (wwwgoodreadscomprofilem) | 337 comments I recommend The Man Who Planted Trees by Jean Giono an inspirational book that talks about our connection to the Natural Environment and Human World.

"The Man Who Planted Trees" is a wonderful symbolic and allegorical tale about perseverance, hope and humility, with an universal message.

A tribute to nature, to preserve and support the efforts of reforestation in the World.

" Jean Giono's" writing is intense, poetic, beautifully complemented by the wood engravings of the American illustrator "McCurdy". These wood engravings strengthens the symbolic, ecological inspiration of this fabulous book.

M (wwwgoodreadscomprofilem) | 337 comments The Green group has started, for " 2010 - International Year of Biodiversity ", a reading challenge's list of favorites books by themes.

Here's a book by Sir David Attenborough. Sir David Attenborough is Britain's best-known natural history film-maker. There are very few places on the globe that he has not visited.

The Private Life of Plants by David Attenborough

M (wwwgoodreadscomprofilem) | 337 comments The Black Nile One Man's Amazing Journey Through Peace and War on the World's Longest River by Dan Morrison is a true story, the story of people trying to live in a complex territory. A modern adventure, with a lot of details about The Nile's river and its inhabitans, part travelog, part history. Dan Morrison's modern adventure is a rich and educational adventure written in a vivid style.

Here's the link " The Group Talks with Dan Morrison "
