The unique story of March Wong, Pacific Northwest tree climber, became an acclaimed bestseller in 2016. This special commemorative hardcover edition includes both the author’s preferred text of The Eagle Tree as well as the follow-up novella Holy Trinity.
THE EAGLE TREE
The remarkable story of a boy and a tree
Fourteen-year-old March Wong knows everything there is to know about trees. They are his passion and his obsession, even after his recent fall—and despite social services’ threat to take him away from his mother if she doesn’t keep him out of their branches. But the young autistic boy just cannot resist the captivating pull of the Pacific Northwest’s lush forests just outside his backdoor. Intertwining themes of humanity and ecology, The Eagle Tree eloquently explores what it means to be a part of a family, a society, and the natural world that surrounds and connects us.
An Eagle Tree Story
Holy Trinity continues the story of March Wong, the unusual protagonist of The Eagle Tree. In this short novella, March Wong explores the world of Pacific Northwest lichens and finds himself making unique discoveries. This new story takes place a year after the events of The Eagle Tree.
