Name of the book: The Baron in the Trees
Genre: Historical
Book publish year: 1957
Rating (out of 5): 3
Brief intro: Cosimo, a young eighteenth-century Italian nobleman, rebels by climbing into the trees to remain there for the rest of his life. He adapts efficiently to an arboreal existence and even has love affairs. Translated by Archibald Colquhoun.

Review: The fact that he spends the whole time into the trees dampers what is indeed an amazing book.
