    Author notes:

    • Jean Giono has recorded the story of Elzeard Bouffier who devoted his life to planting acorns in a desolate area in France, after the deaths of his wife and child. Forests grew, and the landscape was reclaimed.
    • In ancient Greece, the oak groves surrounding the temple of Zeus at Dodona were thought to be endowed with a gift of prophecy, and the sound of their leaves interpreted as oracles.
