The People Who Hugged the Trees

PDF I just read a very different version of this story in The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales.In Deborah Lee Rose's version, Amrita is an adult rather than a child, when she helps to save the trees.Also, in Rose's version, the Maharajah is angry at first that his plans have been thwarted, rather than in admiration of the women's bravery.I suspect Rose's tale is closer to the historical truth, whereas the version presented in The Barefoot Book of Earth Tales is toned down and shortened for a younger audience.I enjoyed both versions, and in this one I loved the pictures too, which were filled with interesting and colorful details of life in that part of India.Too bad it's out of print.Recommended, especially in combination with other tree-hugging stories.
