A phenomenal #1 bestseller that has appeared on the New York Times bestseller list for nearly three years, this memoir traces Maya Angelou's childhood in a small, rural community during the 1930s. Filled with images and recollections that point to the dignity and courage of black men and women,Angelou paints a sometimes disquieting, but always affecting picture of the people--and the times--that touched her life.
"[T]ell[s] of finding hope in the midst of loss and adversity, and about the triumph of the human spirit. In these days and times, it's the kind of reading many people may yearn for."
