The Incredible Journey of Roger Spelling
Author: Peter A. Barbieri
In a rich and multi-layered debut novel, Tree of Dreams, Peter Barbieri extends New American Realism into the spiritual and fantastical realms. As the poet Eli Siegel says, "There are millions of men in the world, and each is one man, each is one man by himself, taking care of himself all the time, and changing other men and being changed by them . . ." Such is Barbieri's conflicted character, ROGER SPELLING. In a quest as old as war itself, Roger returns from military service profoundly affected by what he has experienced. He is not well. He acknowledges his deteriorating mental condition, and in an effort of will, decides to write about his experience. "Either a man has quit or he has gone forward," says William Carlos Williams. Roger moves forward with a novel, which, he believes, will take him to the root of his struggle. And with him, we begin to change. Roger's writing experience provokes a disturbing relationship with his twin sister Katherine. The resulting anxiety deepens Roger's illness; he is institutionalized. Nonetheless, Roger's labyrinthine journey continues. In a psychotic, dream-like state, Roger encounters an 18th Century relative who explains, "People only wake up when they become thoroughly exhaust¬ed, thor¬oughly tired of the nonsense." Eight generations of Roger's ancestry appear, disappear, connect the fragments of his existence, and tell us something about him and ourselves in the process. Tree of Dreams is an evolution of consciousness that moves beyond perception and the fiction of time to a place where all events are simultaneous, where reality is richer than we have the right to expect, where lives are joined in unimagined ways. "In every illusion,"as Eli Siegel says, "there must be something which isn't illusion," and "The world is waiting to be known . . . the past is in it." Roger Spelling is an ordinary man. Peter Barbieri demonstrates how extraordinary this truly is.

When seventeen-year-old Jade Reynolds witnesses a violent clash between a protesting tree sitter and a local logger, she runs as far as she can from the battles that plague her home and from the mysteries of the redwood forest. But the ancient redwoods are embedded in her psyche—she feels their call even in the dark and forgotten back alleys of Portland, Oregon where she’s hiding out. She soon becomes entangled with a lovable misfit and a band of radical slackers, environmentalists, and anarchists, and finds herself living 100 feet high in the canopy of a redwood grove, trying to decide whose side she’s on: the logging community she’s known her entire life or the environmentalists who are risking their lives for the future of the forest. To find a way beyond the division between Us and Them, Jade turns to the ancient trees themselves—and the thread-thin web that connects us all. Tree Dreams is an eco-literary, coming of age novel relevant for teenagers and adults alike, for this rite of passage asks the same of us all—whatever our age or life stage, we each must discover our one true voice, and learn how to offer it to the world.
