Summary
"Sacred Trees, Sacred People of the Pacific Northwest explores our relationship with nature embodied by trees within the region, where trees resonate within our collective consciousness. Each chapter resurrects the story of a real tree held sacred by communities in British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and Northern California; each chapter answers the basic question: what is the nature of relationship with this tree and what is the result? The author's keen observation and telling of local histories reveal common and uncommon men and women, including loggers, tree sitters, big tree hunters, scientists, and ordinary citizens. While the focus is regional, the stories have universal appeal because many of us are seeking to reconnect with nature as we fear its irreparable destruction"--
