Post election tonic for the soul

I listened to this book in a single sitting. I was feeling down after the election and it lifted me up

At the feet of our elders

I enjoyed the narration, Maya Angelous' voice is captivating. I felt as if I was sitting in the front of my great grandmothers rocking chair, listening as she educated me on life in general.

True To Life

I feel that Maya Angelous portrayal of her life is both shocking but real and that is a quality many authors lack these days. i feel my mind and my heart melting into her words when i listen to her work. She is a fantasic author, role model and fellow human being whose words should always be treasured.

Free to live, think and experience wonder..

This volume by the experienced Grandmother of all is filled with wisdom, grace and beauty for the next generation. I was floored by the sheer rawness of her story yet I loved her softness. Her famous tone wrapped it all in velvet casing of love and concern. I am free to live, think and experience wonder in my unique skin.
