Description: When, in the dawn of the 19th century, Humboldt and Bonplant avidly toured the American surface, they included in their notes that the Quindio region in Colombia was practically covered with guadua trees. That is not surprising. The fertile, humid, well-drained soil in this zone is completely apt for these plants. Guadua wood is used for everything: landscaping, waterworks, columns, beams, gates, bridges, ladders, furniture, recipients. Its fast growth -- up to 1.20 m. in one day -- and its uncommon flexibility make it an attractive material for this region's people's ingeniousness; they have deployed all of their creativity in using this tree. With more than 300 color photographs that depict the history and origin of the guadua bamboo, its natural production, and how it is used in housing construction and that of other spaces, this 176-page book is not only a well-deserved elegy to the guadua but also a beautiful manner through which to make its sublime properties better known.
