Summary
This inspiring black family success story centers on an exceptional woman whose American dream brought her from abject poverty in the rural South to become the mother of five outstanding achievers. Told first through Maggie's own words, then through those of her son James--an award-winning child psychiatrist and educator--this is an unforgettable chronicle of courage and resourcefulness, of pride and achievement, of daring to dream despite the odds.--From publisher description
