This powerful song of an ancient Douglas fir celebrates the age-old cycle of life in the Pacific Rain Forest. From the gentle whisper of owls’ wings to the haunting echo of a lone wolf’s cry, each scene resonates with the beauty and sacredness of nature. But when bulldozers invade the forest, the tree senses its impending destruction and asks, "Who will house the owl? And who will hold that river’s shore? And who will take refuge in my shadow, if my shadow falls no more?" This stunningly illustrated book sounds an urgent call to preserve our fragile environment, reminding each of us that the hope for a brighter future lies in our own hands.
