AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A touching and uplifting story about love, change and the importance of the natural environment in all our lives. One tall tree on the mountain once marked Grandfather’s farm. Now there is a busy city and Grandfather lives with us in our apartment.

Once he told stories but now he stays silent. Until one day, in the city market, I find something precious . . . something that brings Grandfather’s memories alive again.'
