Walking Tree Press is a small independent publishing company located
in the rural Willamette Valley of western Oregon, where trees grow
very tallbut never walk.
The Walking Tree of the Amazon Jungle has the unusual ability to
"walk" on aerial roots, which serve as "legs." Inspired by a need
for more light, the tree lets roots on one side die off and grows
new ones in the direction it wants to go. In this manner, the
Walking Tree moves up to seven feet a year.
At Walking Tree Press we believe that if a tree can decide to make
a change and move in a new direction, we humans should certainly be
able to do the same. Walking Tree Press publishes books that make a
differencebooks that contribute to our knowledge of the world,
books that are beautiful to look at and handle, and books that
inspire us to move in new directions.
