Trees and people who have their lives touched in incredible ways by them fill these remarkable stories. Epic in scope but so, so beguiling in the telling.
What starts as individual stories, fascinating in their own right, interconnects by the book’s end. Just a few parts slowed down for me. Every reader will have favorite characters and storylines that resonate. I read the author’s earlier 'The Echo Maker' in 2005 because a friend recommended how the author blends science in his storytelling art. This book does the same. Such a talented writer.
