Known as the Mother Tree by some, the birch has been significant to the well-being of civilizations in the Northern Hemisphere since the last ice age. The unlimited uses and applications of this distinctive and graceful tree have served many cultures: thus, the birch is celebrated in countless traditions, histories, and myths.

In Celebrating Birch, North House Folk School, a community created to encourage lifelong learning through the teaching of traditional crafts, introduces a broad history of the birch – from its biology and ecology to its place in the practical and spiritual aspects of many northern cultures. In addition, included are 20 beautiful and practical projects to create, including a woven bark basket, carved box, and turned wooden bowl. More than just a tree, the birch is a link to our common human past that enriches the lives, hears, and minds of those who work with it.
