The Tree (with CD)
The Tree Hardcover
(Dana Lyons, Illustrator David Lane Danioth)
An 800-year-old Douglas fir ponders the many things it has seen in the natural world as it hears the bulldozers tearing down the forest around it.
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 owl’s wings to the haunting echo of a lone wolf’s cry, each scene resonates with the beauty and sacredness of nature.
When bulldozers invade the forest, the tree senses its impending destruction and asks,
Who will house the owl?
And who will hold that river shore?
And who will take refuge in my shadow,
when my shadow falls no more?
This stunningly illustrated book sounds an urgent call to preserve our fragile environment, reminding each of us that the hope for a brighter future lies in our own hands.
