Abstract:

"En Provence, dans une région aride et sauvage, un berger solitaire plante des arbres jours après jours. Voici l'histoire d'Elzéard Bouffier, le silencieux, l'obstiné, qui réconcilie l'homme et la nature." --

"The hero of the story, Elzeard Bouffier, spent his life planting one hundred acorns a day in a desolate, barren section of Provence, France. The result was a total transformation of the landscape -- from one devoid of life, with miserable, contentious inhabitants, to one filled with the scent of flowers, the songs of birds, and fresh, flowing water."--
