And hear about their 10-year, tree-planting odyssey across America.
While recovering from breast cancer in 1987 Joyce Jackson had an idea to keep her mind off her illness. She wanted to combine her love of trees, travel, and desire to create a living legacy. The Trail of Trees project led her and her husband, John, across America planting trees in every state. Their journey took them to every city named Jackson in all fifty states. Their book recounts their journey, gives some history of all the Jackson cities they encountered and the wonderful people they met along the way.
