    • Southcrop Forest takes the reader into the natural world like few other books have before. It is told through the 'eyes' of the Southcrop Trees and the colony of crawlers who calls itself Fur. Southcrop Forest is under threat from deforestation by the rollers (man) and have to protect both themselves and their gift of Southcrop Vision before it is too late. To do so they need to pass on their gift to the surrounding forests from which they have been isolated by the man trails and false rock (roa [...]


    • I've always been interested in stories with non-human characters. I have an idea to write a story one day about a city - not the people in it, but the city itself, as a living character with its own actions and motivations.

Trees can't move around or do very much, so how could a whole novel be written about them? Well, Lorne Rothman manages it, and it works very well.The premis [...]


    • This novel is about the trees of Southcrop Forest, a forest in crisis. Reduced to little more than a forest fragment, they are hemmed in on all sides by human sprawl.

It is a kind of group-mind being consisting of over 240 separate entities, not seen in Southcrop Forest for the past thousand years. Auja persuades [...]

    • It calls itself Fur but we humans would all define this entity as a colony of tent caterpillars. Unique in its own right, Fur can communicate with trees.

    • This is a Nature story that let's you see things from the point of view of trees and of one Tent caterpillar, Fur, who is an individual speaking for all the Tent caterpillars.
