Told against the backdrop of changing seasons with gorgeous, detailed illustrations, Survivor Tree observes a Callery pear tree from sapling all the way to maturity. For 30 years, the tree went mostly unnoticed in the shadows of the World Trade Center until the day the whole world changed — 9/11. From the wreckage, workers found unexpected green and as the nation healed, so did the tree, ultimately being replanted back home — at One World Trade Center.
