    Hunted, wounded, and on the run, Daphne DeFreest wakes up within

    Hunted, wounded, and on the run, Daphne DeFreest wakes up within the confines of a most unique healing unit - the embrace of a sentient forest entity that she dubs 'LAFE'.  She and the being quickly establish a bond, which allows Daphne to work back in the human world in order to prevent a pipeline project from cutting the forest in half and effectively lobotomizing her new-found friend!

    At turns touching and thought-provoking, this is a story that the hard-core science fiction community will enjoy.  I liken this work to 'Neuromancer' because (spoiler alert, unless you read the Book Description) we learn that there are *other* gestalt entities out there around the globe that will also play a major part in the story.

    Highly recommended for a fast, intelligent read.

    An engaging read

    I highly recommend this plot-twisting, fast-reading book. It presents current social views in the context of an extension to reality (it is science fiction) that provokes consideration of unknown potential within the natural environment. It takes tree-hugging/(hugging by trees?) to new heights while exploring possibilities in our society and associations with other life. Weinberg expertly twines science and society, illuminating both, and creates reading that educates while entertaining.
