Publishers Description: When Eve Palmer began to plant her hot hillside garden in Pretoria over thirty-five years ago, she knew instinctively what she wanted -- the wild trees of the South African countryside. Although indigenous trees had not yet become fashionable and not much was known about their cultivation, she set out, undaunted, on a lifelong experiment that was to culminate in two major pioneering works on the subject. Eve Palmer needs little introduction. Her 'Trees of South Africa' was the first major work on the subject written for the general reader, and its influence is still felt today. Together with Norah Pitmann she expanded this into the monumental three-volume 'Trees of Southern Africa' which remains definitive.
