Publisher's Summary

Fourteen-year-old March Wong knows everything there is to know about trees. They are his passion and his obsession, even after his recent falls - and despite the state's threat to take him away from his mother if she can't keep him from getting hurt. But the young autistic boy cannot resist the captivating pull of the Pacific Northwest's lush forests just outside his back door.

One day, March is devastated to learn that the Eagle Tree - a monolithic Ponderosa Pine near his home in Olympia - is slated to be cut down by developers. Now, he will do anything in his power to save this beloved tree, including enlisting unlikely support from relatives, classmates, and even his bitter neighbor. In taking a stand, March will come face-to-face with some frightening possibilities: Even if he manages to save the Eagle Tree, is he risking himself and his mother to do it?

Intertwining themes of humanity and ecology, The Eagle Tree eloquently explores what it means to be part of a family, a society, and the natural world that surrounds and connects us.

    "One enlightening perspective on living with Autism"

    Ned Hayes provides an honest, intense, and powerful look his personal experience of coming of age with Autism. He shares so many insights, giving me even more reasons to ask my clients for more clarification regarding their thoughts, interpretations, and motives for behaviors. Ned's story also gives a glimpse into the challenges of parenting a child with Autism, the gifts of such a child, and the results that can come from acceptance and appropriate structure. Moving, intense, powerful! Thank you, Ned, for sharing your story, and Will Ropp for the brief bringing it to life in true voice!

    "Great performance"

    The reader did a fantastic job of capturing the tone of the book. I'm glad I listened to it over reading it. And now I know a lot more about trees. Well written.

    "The Eagle Tree"

    Interesting story about an autistic boy's love and knowledge of trees. It would have earned more stars if autism was kept focused and much less political messaging via the young boy!
