Julia Lorraine Hill picked up the nickname Butterfly after a butterfly landed on her hand, and stayed there, throughout an entire hike with her family. Readers will learn that Julia's whimsical nickname doesn't quite cover her lofty accomplishments. She is world-known as the young woman who climbed into a tree in 1997, to save it from being destroyed. She lived in that tree, named Luna, for over 700 days, ultimately succeeding in protecting Luna, and the trees within 200 feet of it. Of course, that didn't stop a lunatic from trying to saw through Luna a year later. Fortunately Luna was saved and is braced for survival. Give your readers a chance to open their eyes to what an inspired person can accomplish in order to live in harmony with and to protect Nature.
