Voices of Women with Host Kris Steinnes: Dr. Jean Shinoda Bolen Discusses her New Book "Like a Tree: How Trees, Women and Tree People Can Save the Planet"

  03/25/2011  01:00 pm PDT

Like a Tree: How Trees, Women, and Tree People Can Save the Planet will appeal most to people who realize that they are "tree people." It is poetic and educational, inspirational, spiritual, and down to earth, covering the subject of trees from anatomy and physiology to trees as archetypal and sacred symbols. It is also a strong and positive call to ecological activism, with stories of the organizations and "tree people" who are trying to save our forests and the planet: Greenpeace's Kleercut campaign to save the Boreal Forest, Wangari Maathai's Greenbelt Movement, Julia Butterfly Hill's campaign to save a California Redwood. Bolen offers a unique vision based on metaphysics, psychology, mythology, and global gender politics. She writes eloquently about deforestation, global warming, and overpopulation, as well as the work of Amnesty International and the UN Commission on the Status of Women.
