Summary "This book tells engaging stories about the science of dendrochronology, the study of tree growth rings. From studying tree rings, scientists can learn about the past climate on earth, and sometimes tree-ring data provide evidence of natural events that affected human history. Connecting natural history (as read through tree rings) to human history is at the heart of this book"-- Provided by publisher.
