Abstract

In these memoirist essays I interweave my life stories with sojourns in nature and my spiritual journey. Not a narrative of horrific abuse and trauma , it is an account similar to those of other women growing up the 1950's, a time of pretense that social problems did not exist, that the United states was a place of upward mobility-except if you were black, poor, female or otherwise removed from a life of privilege.
