Description: The hero of the story, Elzeard Bouffier, spent his life planting one hundred acorns a day in a desolate, barren section of Provence, France. The result was a total transformation of the landscape -- from one devoid of life, with miserable, contentious inhabitants, to one filled with the scent of flowers, the songs of birds, and fresh, flowing water.

Chelsea Green is proud to once again collaborate with American Forests to present the Jean Giono Award to an individual who embodies the tree-planting spirit of Elzeard Bouffier. Past winners include Paul Rokich, who secretly planted trees under cover of night on the denuded hills of Utah's Oquirrh Mountains, land that had suffered from overgrazing, excessive logging, fires, and copper-mining activities.

We have joined the Paul Winter Consort in the release of a CD version of the acclaimed audio of this story. The original music was composed and is performed by the Paul Winter Consort, and the text is narrated by Robert J. Lurtsema, host of "Morning Pro Musica" on public radio station WGBH in Boston.

We are also offering packages of 12 beautiful note cards featuring six of Michael McCurdy's wood engravings from the book, with a message from the text on the back of each card.
