Imagine living in a tree house. Sounds fun, right? Now imagine living in a tree for two
years. That's exactly what Julia Butterfly Hill did to save a giant redwood tree from being
cut down in the late 1990s in California. Julia's act of civil disobedience not
only saved her tree -- named Luna -- but it also saved the surrounding grove of trees.
Luna & Me: The True Story of a Girl Who Lived in a Tree to Save a Forest by
Jenny Sue Kostecki-Shaw tells the story of Julia Butterfly Hill. An author's note at the end of the book provides additional information about this remarkable story and even has a picture of Julia while she was living in Luna.
