Francis Lim weaves a fascinating story of the mahogany tree by blending together selected scientific facts with a rich concoction of medicinal folklore as well as elements like personal encounters, field studies and observations, experiments, and discoveries about the life and times of one of the world's best-known tropical hardwood tree, the mahogany.

The result is an endearing and engaging account of many aspects of this incredibly resilient and useful tree, including: the historical roots, botanical features like fruit reproduction and seed dispersal, traditional medicinal folklore, pests and diseases as well as a section on making handicrafts from parts of the fruit.

The story is passionately told and illustrated with more than 120 photographs. It will enhance our understanding and appreciation of the mahogany tree and of all trees in general.

This is Francis Lim's second book on a local nature subject, after The Singapore Mistletoe Story.
