A little boy who's about to turn six years old is thinking about cake and toys and the best birthday gift of all, a puppy. Daddy tells him to look for a Wish-Tree, on the bark of which is engraved TAKECAREOFYOURWISH. The boy falls asleep as he ponders his father's advice, and he dreams of a Wish-Tree, with a trunk as big as a house and so tall that the sky had to bump up to get over the top of it. A remarkable adventure follows, involving the limitless nature of wishing and responsibility. Written by the noted teacher and poet John Ciardi, this fanciful tale is filled with inventive, dreamlike drawings by Louis S. Glanzman, illustrator of the Pippi Longstocking books.

The Wishing Tree provides an in-depth overview of the revolutionary changes that have occurred during the past two decades in Indian studies and, as a result, helps provide a deeper understanding of the Indian civilization.The West has often perceived India as the land of magic and mystery, yet there are aspects of Indian traditions that speak straight to its heart. Subhash Kak, a professor at Oklahoma State University and well-respected lecturer, presents the results of his intensive research on a multitude of subjects related to both Indian and Western culture, and provides a positive and introspective look into India's amazing history and civilization. Kak addresses many controversial issues, which are commonly debated only by academics, about India's contribution to world civilization, its antiquity, and the relevance of its culture for the world's future. Using recent archeological findings and new analysis of ancient texts, Kak lays the groundwork for questioning both long-held beliefs and the research of scholars from past generations.The Wishing Tree uncovers the story of India's ancient origins, its presence through its influence on other cultures, and most importantly, its promise for the future.This edition has been made possible by the Arise Arjuna Foundation.
