"When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world."
John Muir

We live in a time of crisis in our homes and in our natural environment. From hurricanes to oil spills, we are linked to each other through the loss and degradation of regional and national habitats. Our selfhoods and the place we make for ourselves in the world are ultimately rooted in both our biological and ecological families.

A Child called it is a book based on true experiences of the author Dave Pelzer. As a child he was physically and mentally abused by his mother. He was singled out from his siblings and things were not what a child in a loving household would go through. The traumatic effect of the abuse marked Pelzer's life.
