In 1994, 16-year-old Eric Irivuzumugabe climbed a cypress tree and remained there for 15 days without food or water. He wasn't trying to win a bet with his friends--he was attempting to save his life. Eric is a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide that claimed the lives of 800,000 people in just 100 days. In the midst of indescribable loss, and without a job, a home, or an education, Eric was determined to start a new life for himself and his two surviving brothers.

My Father, Maker of the Trees is the story not only of his physical survival, it is the story of his spiritual rebirth and the role he is playing in the healing and redemption of his land and people. His incredible account will show readers the reality of evil in the world as well as the power of hope. Eric's message of God's relentless love through our darkest circumstances will encourage and inspire.

    " This book is amazing. To face forgiveness at it's rawest place believeing there is no hope for freedom of vengeance's desperate grip, and then subtly emerges the call to forgive, the obedience to forgive...forgiveness...freedom. A must read. "

    " I hate to admit it, but I don't remember the Rwandan Genocide. I found this book to be one of sadness, anger, hatred but also of happiness, forgiveness and love. I was blown away at times with the work of the Lord!! There is much to be learned about the love and power of God in this book! "
