Before We Stood Tall
From Small Seed to Mighty Tree
Expressive text and art tell the story of the life cycle of trees as it has never been told before — in reverse. Here’s a poetic depiction of the life cycle of trees, told one step at a time, based on newly researched information. In a unique twist, the book highlights the underground network of roots and fungus that connects the forest. Trees and their cycle of life have never been more beautifully — or more lovingly — celebrated.
