Life in Color is arranged by color in a rainbow of beauty. Each chapter, devoted to a color, begins with a short, inspiring essay that explores the qualities, meaning, and symbolism of that color, written in the same warm and lovely voice that guided the reader through Visions of Earth. Color chapters include photographs that are predominantly blue, orange, green, yellow, purple, and red. Smaller sections present images in silver, brown, black, gold, white, and "unseen color"—not seen with the naked eye, such as laser, the universe, and microscopic images. Throughout, interesting quotes and surprising short insights in the captions give the reader an entirely new look at the color in the world around us.

Many cultures and religious across the globe have used the "tree of life" as a way to represent the interconnectedness of all life on the planet. In ancient Armenia, the tree was not only a religious symbol, but was also carved on soldier's armor. The Chinese tree of life typically depicts a dragon and a phoenix, symbols of immortality and rebirth. In Christianity, the tree of life appears in the book of Genesis, where it remains in the garden of Eden, a symbol of humanity free from the concept of original sin. The idea of the tree of life was also used by Charles Darwin to illustrate the interconnectedness of all life forms.
