“What you make from a tree should be at least as miraculous as what you cut down.” You succeeded at that, Mr. Powers… I wanted to read this simply because it won the Pulitzer last year, and found it to be a captivating account of how interdependent we are with nature. All I knew going in was that it was a “book about trees”, but I was pleasantly surprised. It’s not a pure page-turner, but Powers draws you in with just amazingly eloquent writing, and I usually enjoy this type of story format — disparate stories that weave more & more together as you read. At 512 pages, it’s not for the faint of heart, but as with anything good, your effort will be rewarded. -- Jonathan

"The best novel ever written about trees, and really just one of the best novels, period." --Ann Patchett

A novel of activism and natural-world power presents interlocking fables about nine remarkable strangers who are summoned in different ways by trees for an ultimate, brutal stand to save the continent's few remaining acres of virgin forest.


The Overstory is a book for all readers who despair of humanity's self-imposed separation from the rest of creation and who hope for the transformative, regenerating possibility of a homecoming. If the trees of this earth could speak, what would they tell us? Listen. There's something you need to hear.
