The Overstory PDF

Richard Powers

An artist inherits a hundred years of photographic portraits, all of the same doomed American chestnut tree. A hard-partying undergraduate in the late 1980s electrocutes herself, dies, and is sent back into life by creatures of air and light.A hearing- and speech-impaired scientist discovers that trees are communicating with one another. An Air Force loadmaster in the Vietnam War is shot out of the sky, then saved by falling into a banyan. This is the story of these and five other strangers, each summoned in different ways by the natural world, who are brought together in a last stand to save it from catastrophe.

"OverStory are specialists in getting the best from MarkLogic. Even when the systems are little-known and highly complex, the OverStory team analysed our system and exceeded the performance goals we were after. The system has been refactored and is much more maintainable now. I would recommend OverStory to anyone who wants the best from their MarkLogic investment." John Craft, Director
