Overview

Overstory: Zero, Real Life in Timber Country 2nd edition by Robert Leo Heilman

In Overstory: Zero Robert Leo Heilman portrays the working class life of loggers, miners, roofers, millworkers and tree planters in rural Oregon. This revised and expanded collection of his critically acclaimed award-winning essays and memoirs examines the complex relationships between work, nature, community and family in straight forward prose that goes beyond mere labels and issues. Drawing on his experiences from a lifetime of manual labor Heilman provides increasingly rare insight into the lives of the marginalized people he lives among and the land that sustains them. This classic of Pacific Northwest literature was first released in 1995 and appears now in a 20th anniversary edition containing ten additional new pieces that enhance his portrait of a small town community struggling to survive in rural America.
