In the beginning, the world's Great Maker planted gardens filled with all sorts of lovely plants and creatures. Most lovely of all were the gardens of tall trees that reached to the sky and were a home for all the birds. But as people became greedy, the gardens were ruined, the trees were cut down, and the birds no longer sang. The Tale of the Heaven Tree tells how one small child and a single, ugly, wrinkled, brown seed show people the way back to the Great Maker's garden paradise.

Prairie gardens ""rippling with grasses"" and woodland gardens ""deep in green moss and shyly nodding bellflowers"" color the glorious landscape, while the ""warbling and whistling, tumbling, trilling melodies"" of birds fill the air.
