Treasures: The Stories Women Tell about the Things They Keep

Synopsis

This is a book about memory and meaning; these texts bring to light the reflections and stories that women have constructed around the objects they have treasured, which in the past may have been deemed unimportant. These objects contain each woman's life experience and act as a foundation for her values and for the development of her character. The objects are often passed along to other women or handed down to family members, thereby connecting generations of women and creating a collective women's history. Culled from interviews with over one hundred different women, these are rich, compelling and even haunting stories, told in the women's own voices.
