Aina S. Erice
La invención del reino animal
We humans have been making practical use of vegetables for thousands of years. They serve us as food and medicine, we use them in construction and in tissues... But we are linked to them at deeper levels. The first great revolution that we lived -the cultural revolution- took place when we planted the first grain of corn; and we have known how to create beauty through gardens. Without forgetting the religious dimension that certain cultures have found in trees, plants and flowers.
Hand in hand with José Antonio Marina, Aina S. Erice, she delves into our relationship with the vegetable world, and gives us a unique book. She unveils the mysteries of history, compares the mentality of different civilizations and, when necessary, dazzles us with scientific data. A song to nature marked by wisdom and respect.
