Summary
This is the timeless story of a solitary shepherd who spent his life working anonymously to reforest Provence, France, and by doing so revitalized the land and the people who lived there. A barren region in France is brought back to life by the efforts of Elzeard Bouffier who, with great determination, plants 100 acorns everyday over thirty years
