Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is a river flowing near me, and I?ve watched that river change and grow. For eight hundred years I have lived here, through the wind, the fire, and the snow. This powerful song of an ancient Douglas fir celebrates the age-old cycle of life in the Pacific Rain Forest, revealing the interconnectedness of all things. From the gentle whisper of owls' wings to the haunting echo of a lone wolf 's cry, each scene resonates with the beauty and sacredness of nature. But when bulldozers invade the forest, the tree senses its impending destruction and asks, "Who will house the owl? And who will hold that river's shore? And who will take refuge in my shadow, if my shadow falls no more?" A stunningly illustrated book, The Tree sounds an urgent call to preserve our fragile environment, reminding each of us that hope for a brighter future lies in our own hands. ?I love this book!? Pete Seeger, musician and songwriter

Review:

?The Tree should be on every child?s bookshelf. The illustrations are hauntingly beautiful. The message is powerful – we must take peaceful action to save what we love.? Dr. Jane Goodall, author of Reason for Hope

Synopsis:

An 800-year-old Douglas fir tree reflects on its life and the beauty of the natural world as it hears the approach of the bulldozers that are coming to end its life.
