Synopsis: A warm, accessible, step-by-step guide to creating precious personal histories from the memories of older people, by the best-selling author of Hang Time and his sister, journalist D. G. Fulford.
From the Back Cover: Long lives yield many treasures: pictures, keepsakes, property, or savings, the standard currencies of inheritance passed on from generation to generation. But there is another precious legacy, one that is often lost: memories, the closely held images of people, places, and things that are the blueprint of a life. In To Our Children's Children, bestselling author and nationally syndicated columnist Bob Greene and his sister, journalist D. G. Fulford, have created an attractive and engaging guidebook that makes recording a personal hisrory as uncomplicated and easy as writing a letter. A brief introduction sets the tone of fond remembrance, followed by chapters of questions designed to elicit answers that will form the patchwork of a fascinating personal history. To Our Children's Children concentrates on the particulars of life, the basics, askng engaging questions that open the doors of memory, in chapters like "The House of Your Growing Up", "Everyday Life", "Homefront", and more. To Our Children's Children invites us to wander the golden corridors of memory and create for our children and for future generations a written or spoken record that is the greatest gift we can hope to offer - our lives, our memories, ourselves.
