This is a story about hugging trees. About the women who inspired the iconic environmental Chipko movement in India, which literally means to hug, and it’s a story about the Bishnoi faith and the women leaders from that small spiritual minority in the Himalayan foothills, the ones who triumphed, and the ones who were murdered protecting the ancient trees that hold back the all-consuming desert and keep the mountains up. This is the story of Amrita Devi, and Gaura Devi, who lived and fought for trees 300 years apart in the Marwar desert region of western Rajasthan.
