What People are Saying About This
“The elders that share stories in this book continue to give us a sense of place, a sense of safety, courage, and vision. Their stories make us laugh and teach us to be better people, families, and communities.... This book has been constructed from multiple layers of stories in that spirit of rebuilding, and *I am proud to be a part of it*.”
