A parable for modern times, The Man Who Planted Trees is a simple and unforgettable tale about perseverance, hope, and humility. In the years before the First World War, in the foothill sof the French Alps, the narrator meets a shepherd who has quietly taken on the task of planing 100 acorns a day in an effort to reforest the desolate region. Over the next several decades, this man's quiet, solitary works comes to fruition--the region in transformed, life and hope return, and the world is renewed.
