The Overstory

Barbara Kingsolver, in The New York Times Book Review (cover review) calls this, “Monumental…The Overstory accomplishes what few living writers from either camp, art or science, could attempt. More subtly developed than the human purview that we gain glimpses of a vast, primordial sensibility, while watching our own kind get whittled down to size." From the publisher: "The Overstory unfolds in concentric rings of interlocking fables that range from antebellum New York to the late twentieth-century Timber Wars of the Pacific Northwest and beyond, exploring the essential conflict on this planet: the one taking place between humans and nonhumans. There is a world alongside ours—vast, slow, interconnected, resourceful, magnificently inventive, and almost invisible to us."
