Book Description

Ray Carte plummets off an icy mountain road and crashes headlong into a tree. He finds himself lost in a strange world with an ethereal guide bearing a canny resemblance to Alice of Lewis Carroll’s Wonderland. As Ray spars with his mysterious companion over life and death, science and religion, spirit and matter, he begins to realize this is no fairy tale; if he is to have any hope of returning to loved ones, he must rely on her guidance.

Under the Tree, written for readers who enjoy philosophy and religion in a dramatic format, transports readers into the postmortem state in this novel of the near death experience.

From the Inside Flap

They didn't know if he would live. He didn't know he was dead.

After the crash, Ray Carte found himself on The Other Side.

She became his guide and showed him the way back home. Along the path, she changed his life forever. He would never be the same; neither will those who read Under the Tree.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Journey September 9, 2004
Format:Paperback
I've always been a fatalist. I believed one cannot change their destiny. I believed that death means just that - the end of the road. But this book has opened my eyes to other interpretations of death and consciousness.

I started reading Stone's book simply for the mystery involved - what will happen to Ray Carte? I experienced much more than a mystery - I experienced a journey.

Usually I read for escapism. Yet this book challenged me. It introduced alternate beliefs about life after death and spirituality, while entertaining me with a great story. And that is really hard to do.

5.0 out of 5 stars over the moon for "Under the Tree" September 9, 2004
Format:Paperback
I have just finished reading "Under the Tree" by Greg Stone and was so touched by its simple story regarding a complex issue. I think that everyone is curious about life after death, and this story gives the reader a wide open ticket to explore it from all angles.

I loved how the chapters switched back and forth from the hospital to heaven. This creative choice made it so interesting to follow and really helped keep the flow swift and strong.

There are so many great moments between characters. In the middle of the book one of the characters helps the main character Ray realize that "he has forgotten who he is and that it is his thoughts that create the world he lives in" This among many more enlightning epiphnies are sprinkled throughout the book to help lift the main character and the reader to ideas that inspire your mind and spirit.

I highly recommend this book, "Under the Tree" to anyone who is looking for a story that will empower and enlighten.

4.0 out of 5 stars An engaging read August 24, 2004
Format:Paperback
Stone's little book is an especially engaging read because of the thoughtfulness he has given exploring what happens to our consciousness when our body gives out. While I thought I would rip through this small book in no time - having had a near death experience myself that led to establishment of a Buddhist practice as does Stone's main character - I constantly found myself putting down the text to contemplate a passage, or just marvel at how right he'd gotten elements of my own experience.

He weaves qualities of Alice in Wonderland into his own text to delightful effect. Stone and his publisher also have done an especially effective job of integrating Under the Tree with a Web site that is especially informative.

5.0 out of 5 stars a mystical, magical tour March 20, 2005
Format:Paperback
Mix "DaVinci code", with "Tibetan Book of the Dead" with a bit of fantasy and you have "Under the Tree". A fantastic book.

"Under the Tree" takes one on a path of self discovey and helps to show how we are all interconnected and that life truly does have a purpose, if only to live each of our lives to the fullest.

I highly recommend this book to all those searching or questioning the path they have chosen and need a new perpective.
