This is a beautifully written and illustrated book about the endangered boreal forest, one of the most important natural defenses we have against climate change. The forest covers one-third of the world's total forest area and is home to innumerable species of animals and so many birds that it is known as North America's bird nursery. It is also essential to maintaining the world's wildlife diversity.

Birds fly north for the summer to breed, beavers build their dams to keep themselves warm and safe under the ice, and evergreen trees spread across three continents in this huge northern area. But this forest is in danger and it dwindles with each passing year. Learning more about it will encourage a new generation to preserve its beauty and bounty.
