In one's lifetime there are role models who help to guide and shape the course in the world, and perhaps the most important model for a daughter is her mother. As a shepherdess, this matriarch provides a blueprint for the qualities and traits that form the foundation of a daughter's life. And so it is that From My Mother's Hands (Republic of Texas Press, fall 2000) captures the positive influences of a mother in the lifetime of her daughter.
The book features: 33 Texas women interviewed; first-person interviewee narratives about their mothers’ positive roles; family photos; family recipes; interviewee profiles.
