The Bonsai Tree by Meira Chand Summary

Jun Nagai, heir to a prominent Japanese spinning empire, takes his new English wife Kate back to Japan after some time in England absorbing Western technology. This is a marriage his arrogant and powerful mother Itsuko, who controls the family business, finds hard to accept and she sets out to destroy it. Jun, fighting for his independence, is pulled between the two cultures owing loyalty to both. Thrown into a strange and incomprehensible world, where the role of a wife is so different, Kate is soon stripped of all her romantic illusions. Her struggle to retain her individuality and adapt to her new environment after a shattering encounter lead her to work as an interpreter. In a bar she meets Tarnura, a business rival of the Nagais. When escaping from him, Kate finds herself in Kamagasaki, a place she thought could not exist in the modern miracle of Japan. Here she discovers Japan’s race of untouchables, the Burakumin, the gangsters, the destitutes and an ancient area of prostitution like no other in Japan. Her terrifying flight through the red light district – the dustbin of a society in which failure has no place – and her rescue by Father Ota, a Japanese Christian missionary, brings her to a new understanding of the culture she has married into.

Peace Tree from Hiroshima by Sandra Moore Summary

**Winner of the 2015 Gelett Burgess Award for Best Intercultural Book** **Winner of the 2015 Silver Evergreen Medal for World Peace** This true children's story is told by a little bonsai tree, called Miyajima, that lived with the same family in the Japanese city of Hiroshima for more than 300 years before being donated to the National Arboretum in Washington DC in 1976 as a gesture of friendship between America and Japan to celebrate the American Bicentennial. From the Book: "In 1625, when Japan was a land of samurai and castles, I was a tiny pine seedling. A man called Itaro Yamaki picked me from the forest where I grew and took me home with him. For more than three hundred years, generations of the Yamaki family trimmed and pruned me into a beautiful bonsai tree. In 1945, our household survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima. In 1976, I was donated to the National Arboretum in Washington D.C., where I still live today—the oldest and perhaps the wisest tree in the bonsai museum."

Indoor Bonsai by Paul Lesniewicz Summary

"Excellent guide...with specifics on individual plants." - The New York Times. A bonsai is a miniature tree. Grown in a shallow dish, it resembles larger trees in all respects except size, and lives to an equally old age. The conventional bonsai requires a site in the open air where the plant is exposed to the sun, wind and rain in order to develop and remain healthy. In this book, however, Paul Lesniewicz looks at those species that can successfully be kept indoors all year round. He explores a vast variety of bonsai trees, including mini versions, which are only 3-6 inches tall, for those who are really lacking in space. Indoor Bonsai includes sections such as choosing a plant or growing it from seed, planting, general care, pests and diseases, shaping, wiring and pruning, and many other aspects, all explained in simple and straightforward terms. Advice is accompanied by step-by-step illustrations and spectacular colour photography throughout, to help you choose and care for your bonsai tree. Paul's guidance is not a one-size-fits-all approach; his sensible and easy-to-follow advice will help each gardener to create their own individual work of art.
