Tree Song

Tree Song

an illustrated storybook for all ages

The story tells of silent, unchanging forests and of the life history of one Sitka Spruce tree, home to numerous insects and birds. "This timely tale chronicles the life of a Sitka spruce from before the arrival of the first European settlers until its stormy end under a changing climate. Despite all, the song of the Sitka lives on. Its story will compel children and adults alike to pause and contemplate the harmony of nature." (Andrew Weaver)
