Wouldn't Take Nothing for my Journey Now
Author
Maya Angelou
Review
Maya Angelou is imparting hard won wisdom about life and feeling good about all your choices and experiences because they make you who you are. She tells about being a young dancer and the people who lived a life of no regret were encouraging to her but the ones with regret would knock her down. She of course did not want to regret anything in her life. She wanted to be a proud black women and a role model to others. She never thought she was a beauty but carried herself well. When her son was little he did not want her to stand out with flamboyant clothes she wore because he wanted her to be like other Moms but as he aged he appreciated her uniqueness a lot more.

Did You Ever Have A Family

Review
Absolutely excellent! I highly recommend this book due to its great writing. Interesting setting premise: the aftermath of a catastrophic event in a small NE town. Told from the view point -- after the fact -- by multiple characters. Gradually the back story is filled in. Poignant and heart-rendering.
