Summary:

Fourteen-year-old March Wong knows everything there is to know about trees. They are his passion and his obsession, even after his recent falls-and despite the state's threat to take him away from his mother if she can't keep him from getting hurt. But the young autistic boy cannot resist the captivating pull of the Pacific Northwest's lush forests just outside his back door.

One day, March is devastated to learn that the Eagle Tree-a monolithic Ponderosa Pine near his home in Olympia-is slated to be cut down by developers. Now, he will do anything in his power to save this beloved tree, including enlisting unlikely support from relatives, classmates, and even his bitter neighbor. In taking a stand, March will come face-to-face with a frightening possibility: Even if he manages to save the Eagle Tree, is he risking himself and his mother to do it?

Intertwining themes of humanity and ecology, The Eagle Tree eloquently explores what it means to be part of a family, a society, and the natural world that surrounds and connects us.

    Everything about this book was a wonderful surprise! The voice of March provides such insight to a young man with a very different way of looking at the world. Also, I learned many fascinating and important facts about global warming, birds, trees, and the interconnection of all aspects of nature. What a treat.
