Some conversations with a friend about the (few) early women in science fiction led me to pick up one of Catherine Moore's books—they don't get much earlier. She was one of my favorites when I was younger, both her standalone stuff and her collaborations with her husband, Henry Kuttner.

The Tree of Life is one of her books featuring the anti-hero, Northwest Smith. Like many of her works, it's technically science fiction but edges into horror. I enjoyed it, though not as much as her most famous with that protagonist, "Shambleau".

It feels quite dated, so I'd only recommend it if you're a hardcore fan of the genre and nostalgic for a bit of 1950s fare. ( )

Women who commune with trees and others in ruined temples are best avoided. Failing that, there is the trusty raygun solution.

Epigraph
Dedication
First words
There was neither food nor water in these ancient Martian ruins, and Northwest Smith knew that it could be only a matter of time before the urgencies of his own body would drive him out to signal those wheeling Patrol ships and trade his hard-won liberty for food and drink.
