The story of Julia Butterfly Hill, who climbed 180 feet up into the tree high on a mountain on December 10, 1997, for what she thought would be a two- to three-week-long "tree-sit." The action was intended to stop Pacific Lumber, a division of the Maxxam Corporation, from the environmentally destructive process of clear-cutting the ancient redwood and the trees around it. This story--written while she lived on a tiny platform eighteen stories off the ground--is one that only she can tell.
