Critics are raving about “The Overstory” by Richard Powers. Standing as silent witnesses to our personal dramas, trees contain our collective history and climate record in their rings. Powers weaves the stories of nine strangers connected through their collective action in preventing a forest from falling to industrial harvesting and ruination. This is an “extraordinary and astonishing novel” (The Guardian).
