The Last Redwood Circus (Paperback)
In the view of Champagne producer Domaine De Boulette, the glorious groves of old-growth redwood trees in Greenley, California set down roots in the wrong location. The water, the slope of the land, and the soil make it perfect for a flagship vineyard. And De Boulette is working hard with the governor to obscure its purchase of the abandoned state forest where they stand.
When the news breaks that the ancient trees are vulnerable to be be clear cut, one descendent of the Pomo Nation tribe that was massacred on that very spot in 1856 commits to lay his body down to keep the sale from going through. When his heroic voice falls short of what many people hope for, a legendary high wire diva steps into the breach. But in a world desperate for wood, the publicity she brings might be the last thing the forest needs.
