BOOK EXCERPT:

About the Book " Through The Eyes of a Child," is a fictional side to the true story of the Cherokee Indians plight, being removed from their homeland in which they existed for centuries. The Cherokee Nation was forced from their homelands and this story tells how a small loving family dealt with the tragedy they would succumb to on this perilous journey. They travel through hazardous conditions. Through all the hardships of family loss, a young child, Little Bird grows from the wisdom taught from her grandmother and mother whose lives become joined with their Great Spirit. Little Bird becomes an icon of strength for her people. Filled with great wisdom and the knowledge of storytelling Little Bird gives the Cherokee Nation a perseverance of faith, and the ideal to never to give up. I have had many friends and family members who have constantly encouraged me to tell this story. The plight of this brave Cherokee Nation will always be remembered. In creating the character of Little Bird and her family I feel that I have given reality to this Trail of Tears that it deserves. I viewed myself as a member of the Cherokee People and wondered what it must have been like traveling so far each day, seeing hunger, disease, treacherous abuse, rape of women and children, these elements attacking this mighty people and watching so many people die before your eyes.

This timely and thought-provoking book explores children's lives in modern cities. At a time of intense debate about the quality of life in cities, this book examines how they can become good places for children to live in. Through contributions from childhood experts in Europe, Australia and America, the book shows the importance of studying children's lives in cities in a comparative and generational perspective. It also contains fascinating accounts of city living from children themselves, and offers practical design solutions. The authors consider the importance of the city as a social, material and cultural place for children, and explore the connections and boundaries between home, neighbourhood, community and city. Throughout, they stress the importance of engaging with how children see their city in order to reform it within a child-sensitive framework. This book is invaluable reading for students and academics in the field of anthropology, sociology, social policy and education. It will also be of interest to those working in the field of architecture, urban planning and design.
