For high school and college EE teachers: When Jade Reynolds witnesses a violent encounter between a local logger and an environmentalist, she must decide which side she's on. But choosing sides only makes matters worse. To find a way beyond the division between Us and Them, Jade must turn to the ancient trees themselves—and the thread-thin web that connects us all. Tree Dreams is an eco-literary, coming of age novel perfect for high school and college environmental education, English, creative writing, forestry and interdisciplinary classes.
