We believe in readers. We believe in books. We believe in the power of the written word. We believe in the magic of children discovering the world of books. We believe in this community. We believe that people prefer buying books from their friendly neighborhood bookstore rather than a website. We believe in browsing for hours with a good cup of tea. We believe in staying up until 2 in the morning because you just can’t put a book down. We believe in book clubs, libraries, and reading under trees. We believe that some books you make your friends read and some books you should keep under your bed and never tell anyone about. We believe in making a difference through books.

An Air Force loadmaster in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan. An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies, and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light. A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. These four, and five other strangers—each summoned in different ways by trees—are brought together in a last and violent stand to save the continent’s few remaining acres of virgin forest.

In a little town in the heart of the Rockies
There are shimmering leaves on aspen trees
And a little bookshop that serves coffee and teas
Goodnight wildflowers, so colorful and cute
