A picture book based on the work of Dr. Gordon Sato, a Japanese American cell biologist who made saltwater and desert land productive through the planting of mangrove trees in Eritrea, a poor African country bordering the Red Sea.



About the Author
SUSAN L. ROTH’s unique mixed-media collage illustrations have appeared in numerous award-winning children’s books, many of which she also wrote. About her inspiration for The Mangrove Tree Roth says, “I wanted to write this book ever since I first heard about [Dr. Sato’s] project in Eritrea. I wanted to illustrate this book the minute I saw photographs of the project.” Roth lives in New York.
