In each of these provincial cities, the entire local community of Ol-zhaan, usually around fifteen in number, took part in the welcoming procession and in all of the other ceremonies and banquets. And every Kindar in the entire area turned out along the public branchpaths to sing and dance and cheer.

I read Below the Root by Zilpha Keatley Snyder and its sequels over and over and over again as a voracious young SF lover in the early 80’s (and surprisingly was oblivious to the computer game based on the same world). At the time, I was fascinated by the ability of Raamo to read minds, or at least emotions, and swept along by the idea of gliding through the treetops.

by Zilpha Keatley Snyder. No book has ever captured my imagination as this book has. Set in a dreamlike utopia of giant forests and ghostlike flowers, it presents a tale of an escape war and suffering, and the shocking rediscovery of the past.

Raamo, at thirteen, had rarely doubted the wisdom of the Ol-zhaan, the unquestioned rulers of the Green-Sky planet. Yet, after he had been chosen to become an Ol-zhaan, he made surprising discoveries and was exposed to dangers different form any he had envisioned. The world of Green-Sky was not what he and the Kindar people had thought. This engrossing science fiction fantasy was first published by Atheneum in 1978 and is the first book of the Green-Sky Trilogy. It was a Junior Library Guild selection that became the basis for the acclaimed and now classic video game, Below The Root.

This novel is great! Having played the early pc game with the same name, I was surprised to find out recently that it was based on a novel! Despite the pc game's low graphics, it had imagination, creativity and told a story in an innovative and interesting way. You controlled the main character Raamo who had ability of pensing and could sense and emit emotions with other characters. The book tells more on the backstory of Raamo and the world of Green-sky. Even though this is categorized as juvenile reading, the author describes the world in a way that draws you into the story. It can be enjoyed by adults too. There is a great message that is relatable to our world now.

The book itself is a former library copy which was described by the seller. It is tough to find and I got it at a decent price. What's inside this book is a wonderful world to discover. So take a few wissenberries and enjoy this tale by Zilpha Keatley Snyder.

I LOVED this book as a child...even had the 'Below the Root' video game for the Commodore 64. A lot of books I loved as a child were not nearly as enjoyable as an adult, but I still greatly enjoyed Below the Root, just in a different way. For a child, the idea of living in a tree and flying (gliding) from place to place really excited my imagination. As an adult, the underlying philosophy of establishing an entire society without violence was really fascinating. I'm not sure if I believe it would actually work, but it made me think. I think this book is good for any age.

This is the outstanding introduction to the Greensky trilogy, a compelling philosophical exploration ingeniously disguised as a children's fantasy series. In the fantasy world of Greensky, the peaceful Kindar live in trees, read each others' minds, and glide from place to place with silken wings. Guided by their revered rulers, the Ol-Zhaan, the Kindar have nothing to fear... except for falling from their paradise and being forced to face the demons that lurk beneath the forest floor.
In addition to providing a marvelous coming-of-age tale set in a wonderful new world, this book will provoke you to ponder and debate important questions about the nature of good and evil. Is it possible to eliminate violence from a society by segregating and repressing the passions? Should governments/priesthoods/scientists withold potentially dangerous knowledge from laypeople to protect them, and does this unshared power inevitably corrupt?
Read this book with your kids!

Below the Root was one of the first scifi/fantasy books I can ever remember reading. No crazy vampires or teen witches but a very spiritual book about two races separated by ignorance. Well written, a totally different environment (they live in cities that are in giant trees). I've read many times and it always makes me take a step back and look at who we as humans are and sometimes how a few callous individuals rule with no regard for the people.

I wanted to read this trilogy because I grew up playing the computer game based on it. The books are good and they clear up some questions I remember from the game. However, the first book is the best, the second is a retelling of the first, and the third is just okay. I'd save your money and get the first book and maybe the computer game and a system to play it on!!!

This is a fun story! I loved the computer game back in the 80s and always thought it should be a book. I just discovered it was actually part of a series. If you like fantasy, you will love this book !

I've been fascinated by the Below the Root stories ever since I discovered the video game in the mid 80s - happy to find the books for Kindle. Excellent story, hypnotizing and deep - a story that gives you much to mull over while enjoying the setting. Will read the entire series.
This is one of my top three favorite Childrens' book series. Imaginative, thoughtful, with a creative and provocative approach to issues of non-violence.
