The artists’ book One Tree, by environmental scientist Gretchen C. Daily and photographer Charles J. Katz, describes how one relict tree, the Ceiba pentandra, located in the village of Sabalito, Costa Rica, carries physical and spiritual importance far out into the world. In poetic language interwoven with scientific fact, Daily describes the historical and natural history of this tree and its species. Katz’s photographs of the tree and the village of Sabalito amplify this message.
