Book excerpt: A memoir about home and belonging, from the author of I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS 'A brilliant writer, a fierce friend and a truly phenomenal woman' BARACK OBAMA Maya Angelou's five volumes of autobiography, beginning with I KNOW WHY THE CAGED BIRD SINGS, are a testament to the talents and resilience of this extraordinary writer. Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope, joy, achievement and celebration. In the fifth volume, Maya Angelou emigrates to Ghana only to discover that 'you can't go home again' but she comes to a new awareness of love and friendship, civil rights and slavery - and the myth of mother Africa. 'She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence and a fierce grace . . . She will always be the rainbow in my clouds' OPRAH WINFREY 'She was important in so many ways. She launched African American women writing in the United States. She was generous to a fault. She had nineteen talents - used ten. And was a real original. There is no duplicate' TONI MORRISON

Download PDF All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes by Maya Angelou and published by Vintage. This book was released on 2010-02-24 with total page 224 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In 1962 the poet, musician, and performer Maya Angelou claimed another piece of her identity by moving to Ghana, joining a community of "Revolutionist Returnees" inspired by the promise of pan-Africanism. All God's Children Need Walking Shoes is her lyrical and acutely perceptive exploration of what it means to be an African American on the mother continent, where color no longer matters but where American-ness keeps asserting itself in ways both puzzling and heartbreaking. As it builds on the personal narrative of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings and Gather Together in My Name, this book confirms Maya Angelou’s stature as one of the most gifted autobiographers of our time.

Download PDF Tales of People Who Get It by Avil Beckford and published by Tales of People Who Get It. This book was released on 2007-06-01 with total page 232 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Tales of People Who Get It is based on the ideas, actions and beliefs that were uncovered in interviews of 34 highly successful individuals from Canada, the United States, Sweden, Switzerland, Jamaica and South Africa. The responses to the interviews form each individual story. And the effect is startling: when you've finished reading the stories, you get the sense that every thing is connected - that we're all connected. There is also a sense of comfort in knowing that any of the stories could be your story because while these are successful people who "get it" they are also ordinary people with the same challenges and struggles we all face. It's a chance to learn from the way they resolve these struggles and apply the lessons when those same challenges arise in your life.
Download PDF The Cambridge Companion to American Travel Writing by Alfred Bendixen and published by Cambridge University Press. This book was released on 2009-01-29 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Travel writing has always been intimately linked with the construction of American identity. Occupying the space between fact and fiction, it exposes cultural fault lines and reveals the changing desires and anxieties of both the traveller and the reading public. These specially-commissioned essays trace the journeys taken by writers from the pre-revolutionary period right up to the present. They examine a wide range of responses to the problems posed by landscapes found both at home and abroad, from the Mississippi and the Southwest to Europe and the Holy Land. Throughout, the contributors focus on the role played by travel writing in the definition and formulation of national identity, and consider the experiences of minority writers as well as canonical authors. This Companion forms an invaluable guide for students approaching this new, important and exciting subject for the first time.
