The Secret Life Of Date Palms
Cyril Veillon Ed
Six date palm characteristics provide the structure of this book: Form, Fruit, Hydration, Metamorphosis, Shade and Shadow, and Gender. Each investigation draws on Emirati traditions and tacit knowledge to share a narrative that is infused with sensitivity, genuine curiosity, and human inventiveness. This is the story of a species that continues to provide great value to the Middle East. The hope is that the spirit of engagement and ingenuity employed throughout history inspires others to find value in their own regional resources, climates and cultures.
