  • Julia "Butterfly" Hill, a twenty-four year old has spent two years living in a tree. She's protesting lumbering of redwood forests in California. Wolens' interviews over two years, including six nights with Hill on her 180-foot high platform, reveal an intensely spiritual and articulate woman determined to accomplish her goal.
