THIS BOOK HAS BEEN UPDATED TO A SECOND EDITION
The book challenges the current management of our remaining forested lands and proposes a different approach to our relationship with nature and our focus on managing the resources from the forests rather than the forests themselves. With 80% of all life systems dependent upon forests for survival, we must turn our focus for the remaining forests to their health and natural diversity. Studying the evolutionary development of our planet discloses the fact that diversity has been build into the creation story and is the single most important element that supports the functioning of life systems on our planet! The updated book offers a deeper evaluation of the problems and offers some new approaches for change. The important lesson is the need to link the science of forestry, to the requirements of humans for future management of our vital forests!
Iris became a member of the Cherokee Nation in 1995, which intensified her desire to learn more about her Native American heritage. “Finding the Treasures Left Along the Trail” has been exciting, and learning of the numerous important individuals that contributed so much to early American history has been incredible! “Finding the Treasures Left Along the Trail – My Cherokee Heritage” presents a historical account of significant contributions made by a family with roots in Europe and in the Cherokee Nation here in America. The book discloses information seldom taught in American history classes in our public schools, and sheds a very different view of the Native American society and its major influence on settlement and development of the United States of America. Even our egalitarian democracy came from the Native American (Iroquois) form of government. You will read stories of family members educated as attorneys, a member raised to the rank of General in the Civil War, and numerous individuals elected to lead the Nation as Principle Chiefs. The Carpenters from Devon shire, England, first arrived on the North American Continent in 1627, and the incredible journey begins!
