This is the true story of Joe Parker who grew up as a foster child. From birth to adulthood, Joes life is challenged by circumstances beyond his control. His perseverance and desire to survive the system as a child, and later to succeed as an adult, will inspire the reader and bring them into the world of growing up as a foster child. Unusual, if not paranormal events illuminate his path through life and will evoke thoughts of spirituality in the reader.
Towns and cities are where most of us live, work and play, and although we recognize the value of the trees standing on the corner, or in the park, or framing the cathedral, most of us are unaware that they are a vital part of our urban life-support system. This invaluable book is essential reading for all those who wish to discover why trees are present in our population centres, how urban life in Britain has engulfed them in the last 200 years, why life is so difficult for urban trees, what their role is, and how we should care for them and include them in our urban future.
