The Lonely Pine
There is a treeline far to the North, a point on Earth at which the harshness of climate and scarcity of sunlight and precipitation prevent trees from growing any closer to the North Pole. Trees became smaller and sparser until, finally, there are no more. The lonely pine is the world's northernmost tree. Through poetic prose and elegant illustrations, readers will travel to an inhospitable but beautiful realm, accompanying this stunted yet resilient tree as it experiences a year's worth of Arctic sights, changes, and hardships. Facing extreme isolation, brutal cold, and threats from both man and animal, will the lonely pine live on?
