I thoroughly reading about Mayor Boosalis My dad worked with the parks department in the 70s and dealt with the mayor often and had great respect for her being the city arborist, the fact that she loved trees probably played a part in his feelings This book brought back many familiar names and incidents Thanks to the author for sharing her memories of Helen.
