This is an audio recording of the KHSU program Alternative Review, which features in-depth interviews with pioneers on the frontiers of cultural transformation, individuals who are discovering more effective and humane responses to the most profound and persistent challenges of our time. Julia "Butterfly" Hill is an environmental activist best known for having lived in a 180-foot-tall, roughly 1500-year-old California Redwood tree for 738 days between December 10, 1997 and December 18, 1999. Hill lived in the tree, affectionately known as "Luna," to prevent Pacific Lumber Company loggers from cutting it down. This interview is from atop Luna. Julia speaks about what she learned in her nine months in that ancient redwood.
