Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Robert Leo Heilman has punched many time clocks. In his first book, Overstory: Zero, Heilman reveals the hard life of the working class: loggers, miners, roofers, mill workers, and tree planters. He tells the truth, not afraid to address both brutality and controversy, especially concerning old-growth forest management. His essays examine the complex relationships between work, nature, and family. In honest, gritty prose that eloquently transcends issues and labels, Heilman gives us rare insight into the threatened timber communities of the Pacific Northwest.

Review:

"This is a huge short book. Better than anyone but Ken Kesey, Robert Heilman writes how woods and streams shape a working people. He just nails it." — Robin Cody, author of Ricochet River and Voyage of a Summer Sun

Review:

"Robert Heilman is a rugged individualist in a rugged land. He lives what he writes, knows what he thinks, and his works are sculpted by a master's hands." -- Lawson F. Inada, author of American Book Award winner Legends from Camp
