I ran hot and cold on this book. Some sections and characters were engaging and had interesting stories; others did not. If you are interested the actual environmental history underlying much of this novel, I recommend [b:American Canopy: Trees, Forests, and the Making of a Nation|12988518|American Canopy Trees, Forests, and the Making of a Nation|Eric Rutkow|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1441952093l/12988518._SY75_.jpg|18148320]. You'll get all the underlying themes along with more-complete facts (and a bit more anger and despair, in all likelihood).
[Audiobook note: The narrator, Robert Petkoff, does a masterful job handling the many non-English terms. He also is one of the best male narrators for providing good-sounding female character voices.]

Very little about nature, way too much about building a house, dealing with contractors. Sadly boring.
