Book 3 in the Lebanese Heritage series by Youmna Jazzar Medlej and Joumana Medlej
Of all trees it is the cedar, our national emblem, that is closest to the heart of the Lebanese. The cedar is featured on the flag. How did it get there? What is special about this tree, and how long has it symbolized Lebanon? To answer these questions, this book retraces the history of the king of trees through the people that have known it, from Gilgamesh to modern Lebanon, and gives us a glimpse of today's forests – to visit, but also to save.
