An environmental fable based on a classic folk tale from India. Retelling the 300-year old story of the first Chipko - the Hug-the-Tree people - the author follows the fortunes of a young girl, Amrita Devi, who grows up to lead her village in saving the nearby forest from the Maharajah's axe-men. Today, the Chipko Movement supports non-violent resistance to tree-cutting. It should be of interest to children aged three upwards.
