“In This One Tree, I find what might very well be the salvation of our distracted, disbanded American soul: an imperative, unempirical Gaze. Peterson commends and then commands Vision in her every word, beginning with her first ones—‘Be on the lookout.’ And what I find most wonderful of all is that, here, Vision goes forward to atonement and a new name in ‘sweet alyssum’ for us all.”
