“Who Brings Trees Brings Life”
A fascinating introduction to the beauty of the trees in the land of the Igala people in the Middle Belt of Nigeria, and how these trees are inter woven with the lives and culture of the people.
The book was compiled by Sister Nora McNamara, MSHR, and Professor Stephen Morse, the fruit of their long association with the people of this area.
