|Plot Summary of The Baron in the Trees|
|"In 1767, 12-year-old Cosimo Piavosco di Rondo refuses to eat the snails he's been served at table, and takes to the trees. He spends the rest of his considerably long life in the trees -- with an occasional stopover on a roof or ship's mast, but never touching solid ground again -- in protest against his father and his family, then society in general. The delightful and witty tale, related by his younger, well-behaved brother Biagio, covers Cosimo's loves, battles, thievery, and ultimate death -- ever true to his principles."
David Loftus, Resident Scholar
