The Overstory By Richard Powers Book Suggestion

This is a book that I have seen pop up repeatedly and is definitely on my ‘to read’ list


This is a fictional book about trees and a group of people who decide to defend them. Readers also find out many surprising facts about trees' own capabilities, including how they communicate, protect themselves and each other, and even give back to forests after death along the way


The book brings to life the greatest problems of our time – climate change and biodiversity collapse using 9 central characters with very different backgrounds and stories whose lives are interwoven with the lives of trees
