This is a story about a young girl who has grown up in the woodland. She spends her time talking to the trees and every other growing and living thing that she encounters while on her expeditions into the woods. It is her inner belief that she herself is a tree.
This tale is also interlaced with a story of a man who is a carpenter. It tells of his love of wood and talks of how and why he chooses the trees that he transforms into fine furniture.
