In his wonderful story of Elzéard Bouffier, an imaginary yet wholly believable shepherd, Jean Giono perhaps hoped to inspire a reafforestation programme that would renew the whole earth. The story opposes the tree-planter, the earth-husband, to the makers of war. At the same time it shows us all that is best in man's relationship with nature both parable and manual and with his fellow man. For Giono, nature is a living force in which man can rediscover the depth and harmony he has lost in urban life. Michael McCurdy's beautiful woodcuts, which accompany the text, have helped establish this book as a classic.

Review:

Michael McCurdy's gentle woodcuts enhance this haunting little 1950s tale . . . a version of pastoral, regenerating a whole landscape and community. --Observer

This is a lovely, poignant little book by one of the most distinguished 20th-century French writers. --Sunday Times

Book Description:

"In Giono's work what every sensitive, full-blooded individual ought to be able to recognise at once is 'the song of the world'" Henry Miller
