And once, born nearly a thousand years after the tree first took root, there was a girl named Julia, who was called Butterfly. When exploring her beloved forest, Butterfly wandered into a grove of ancient trees. One tree had broken branches and a big blue "X" on the side. It was going to be chopped down. Butterfly climbed up into the tree. A tree wouldn't be cut down if it had a person living in it. This is the story of Julia Butterfly Hill and Luna, the redwood tree she lived in for two years, never once coming down. That is, not until Luna's future was safe.

Summary: "Luna" is a fun, quirky, adventurous tale about a young Curandera, served up Tex-Mex style and spiced with Magic Realism. Set in a timeless village in Texas, Luna's birth was predicted to bring great happiness and great sadness. Born of generations of Curanderas, Luna was especially Blessed with healing gifts selected by Our Heavenly Father, God Almighty, Himself. She starts out a bit precocious and overindulged, while developing wonderous and magical powers to help her friends and neighbors. But when she decides to help herself in a foolish and selfish blasphemous act, the results are not what she expects. Luna finds out that all prayers are heard, and sooner or later, they are answered. In the end, Luna discovers the meaning of true love, and that a Curandera has no place in the modern world. But not before run-ins with her family, friends, neighbors, untamed horses, a chupacabra, vengeful fires, ghosts, an unlikely angel, famous handmade chocolates, a horde of winged demons, and a statue of the Virgin of Guadalupe with a blurred photo stuffed inside.

Summary: On December 18, 1999, Julia Butterfly Hill's feet touched the ground for the first time in over two years, as she descended from "Luna," a thousandyear-old redwood in Humboldt County, California. Hill had climbed 180 feet up into the tree high on a mountain on December 10, 1997, for what she thought would be a two- to three-week-long "tree-sit." The action was intended to stop Pacific Lumber, a division of the Maxxam Corporation, from the environmentally destructive process of clear-cutting the ancient redwood and the trees around it. The area immediately next to Luna had already been stripped and, because, as many believed, nothing was left to hold the soil to the mountain, a huge part of the hill had slid into the town of Stafford, wiping out many homes. Over the course of what turned into an historic civil action, Hill endured El Nino storms, helicopter harassment, a ten-day siege by company security guards, and the tremendous sorrow brought about by an old-growth forest's destruction. This story--written while she lived on a tiny platform eighteen stories off the ground--is one that only she can tell. Twenty-five-year-old Julia Butterfly Hill never planned to become what some have called her--the Rosa Parks of the environmental movement. Shenever expected to be honored as one of Good Housekeeping's "Most Admired Women of 1998" and George magazine's "20 Most Interesting Women in Politics," to be featured in People magazine's "25 Most Intriguing People of the Year" issue, or to receive hundreds of letters weekly from young people around the world. Indeed, when she first climbed into Luna, she had no way of knowing the harrowing weather conditions and the attacks on her and her cause. She had no idea of the loneliness she would face or that her feet wouldn't touch ground for more than two years. She couldn't predict the pain of being an eyewitness to the attempted destruction of one of the last ancient redwood forests in the world, nor could she anticipate the immeasurable strength she would gain or the life lessons she would learn from Luna. Although her brave vigil and indomitable spirit have made her a heroine in the eyes of many, Julia's story is a simple, heartening tale of love, conviction, and the profound courage she has summoned to fight for our earth's legacy.

Summary: In The Menace from Farside, Ian McDonald returns to his elegantly wound solar system of the twenty-second century, full of political intrigue and complicated families. Remember: Lady Luna knows a thousand ways to kill you, but family is what you know. Family is what works. Cariad Corcoran has a new sister who is everything she is not: tall, beautiful, confident. They're unlikely allies and even unlikelier sisters, but they're determined to find the moon's first footprint, even if the lunar frontier is doing its best to kill them before they get there. Praise for Ian McDonald's Luna series “McDonald's never written a bad novel, but Luna: New Moon is a great one.”—Cory Doctorow "With an action narrative driving this political commentary, Luna is actually a fantastically fun read as well as an important one.

Summary: WANTED: One Lunar Witch, preferably naïve. Being born a witch has always been just a detail from my past, you know, like summer camp, or the time Timmy ate a bug, but now, thanks to one very pushy Immortal, a handful of mutant shifters, a psycho named Chaos and a nice guy (I think) named Emmet, my magic’s become a real pain in my ass. San Diego was a totally chill choice for college, until this whole moon-cycle madness was thrown in my lap (more like shoved in my face) and now I’m bumbling with basic spells, crash studying to go from zero to fierce in a matter of days. Only problem with this test is that it’s graded pass/fail where failure is death. I wouldn’t wish magic on anyone. It attracts all the wrong entities, the kind you can’t run from, the kind who always find you, the kind who know your dark secrets even before you do.

Summary: Luna is bestselling author Sharon Butala’s second brilliant novel in her loosely linked trilogy that begins with The Gates of the Sun, and ends with The Fourth Archangel. Selling out its first printing within months when it was first re-issued in 1994, this is a classic Sharon Butala novel. Luna is the story of three prairie women at the crossroads of their lives. Rhea, still strong and proud at 80, contemplates her death, and her pioneer life, the years of loneliness she endured, tears seeping from her body while she kneaded her loaves of bread. Selena, Rhea’s niece, struggling to come to terms with her teenaged daughter’s pregnancy, wonders if her way of life is changing forever. And Diane, Selena’s sister, until now a woman cloaked in the busy fabric of farming life suppers, chores and gardening, leaves for the city on a search for freedom, for identity and for self. Each of them is inexorably a part of the vast prairie landscape, its seemingly spare geography in reality as rich and varied as the inner lives of its inhabitants. Luna resonates with our constant, passionate and often mystical struggle to love the land, conquer it, abandon it, and most of all, rediscover ourselves within it.

Summary: Luna was about ten months old when her mother and father took her to Florida to visit with her Aunt Jessie at Christmastime. During the visit, Luna was sitting on the beach when she saw a seagull flying overhead. The seagull spoke to her in a language she could understand. He promised he would teach her to fly when she got a little older. The seagull followed Luna back to her home in Pennsylvania. After she fell asleep one night, he did teach her to fly, as he promised. Every night afterward, and sometimes during the day, the seagull led Luna to different exciting places. They flew to and through the mountains, into the ocean, and through the forests of South America. On all these adventures, Luna met many new friends who sang songs to her that she really liked. Eventually, Luna became too big to fly, and the seagull had to return to Florida. Luna was sad that the seagull had to leave, but she was glad that she made new friends with the names Jack and Jill.
