"In language as sharp as obsidian, as unsentimental as a clear cut, Charlotte Gill tells the story of her tree planting tribe, men and women who spend their lives atoning for the deeds of the rest of us who to this day continue to sacrifice the greatest temperate rainforest on earth on the alter of our prosperity.” —Wade Davis, author of Into the Silence and The Sacred Headwaters
"In the same spare, unflinching prose that brought her such acclaim for her short stories, Gill takes us into the remote and rarely seen world of the tree planter, immersing us in the unique combination of sweat, fog, heartache and humor that distinguishes it from all other labors." —John Valliant, author of The Tiger and The Golden Spruce
