The Olive Tree: A Personal Journey Through Mediterranean Olive Groves
Drinkwater, Carol,

Dust Jacket is in as new condition, apart from normal shop shelf wear - contains no tears or chips or other damage. Dust Jacket un-clipped. All edges clean, neat and free of foxing. This book is currently IN STOCK and would be shipped directly from our Australian address.. The Olive Tree charts Carol Drinkwater's colorful and often dangerous journey in search of the routes that olive cultivation has taken over the centuries. Set during a springtime Mediterranean that is evocative and perennial, it is above all a tale of our time. Troubled by challenges her own South of France farm is experiencing-attack by a virulent pest, the premature ripening of the trees' fruits-Carol realizes new approaches to farming are becoming essential. Traditional customs have been set aside while the use of excessive chemicals is putting the harvests of her crops (and others) at risk. Changing patterns within the world's climate demand urgent action. Carol's quest takes her south through Spain-now the home of more olive trees than anywhere else on earth-Morocco, Algeria, and Italy before she finally returns to her farm. As a woman traveling alone, she is frequently vulnerable and never more so than in Algeria where, on her arrival, terrorist bombs are exploding, devastating the capital. Through her travels and vivid, sometimes unlikely encounters, Carol confronts some of the critical issues of our time-land-care and the harsh realities of diminishing water reserves-and ends her momentous journey in the company of olive growers whose vision for the future is remarkable and ingenious.
