Even though it is a short, gnarled tree, the Jack Pine still stands tall in the forest world.  It thrives in bad soil and is hardy enough to withstand wind and fire. Moreover, its scrubby branches shelter other trees, allowing them to grow. Jack Pine celebrates this tenacious tree through beautifully crafted text that's as hard and knotty as the tree itself. In telling Jack Pine's story, the book shows how the great pine forests contributed to America's growth as a nation. Cybele Young's exquisite 3-D collages depict the trees, farmers, and animals that lived in the 19th-century forest.
