From the Publisher
Editors Note Presents the best mom-inspired contributions to the personal-story archive StoryCorps, in a collection that looks across a diversity of experience to present an entirely original portrait of motherhood.
Annotation Since 2003, StoryCorps has been traveling the country collecting and recording the life stories of more than 50,000 people, and they found that every one of those stories starts in the same place--Mom. Americans from every region, class, and race share their fondest and most powerful memories of their mothers, from happily married moms with 10 kids to single mothers struggling to raise one. These tales of self-sacrifice, courage, wisdom, and the ultimate love in the universe are guaranteed to produce lots of laughs, a few tears, and a renewed appreciation for the most special woman in the world.
