Tree: A Life Story by David Suzuki and Wayne Grady, illustrations by Robert Bateman (Douglas & McIntyre)(It’ll be a surprise to no one that David Suzuki has a collection of quality books out on a variety of environmental subjects, and these are but a few from a larger group: Good News examines how many people---communities and governments---across the globe are already changing their lives with the environment in mind. Sacred Balance considers humanity’s spiritual connection with the life and land around us, and Tree is a historical epic with a Douglas fir as its central character, an organic mix of biology, botany and biography.)
