This gifted storyteller poignantly shares the memories of those mentors and teachers who profoundly influenced her life. She speaks of her voluntary muteness as a child. Even in this silence, "Mama" (Angelou's grandmother) spoke prophetically to the child's unbelieving ears: "You'll speak about the glorious nature of the human spirit and what we can be striving for."

Dr. Maya Angelou is a remarkable Renaissance woman who is hailed as one of the great voices of contemporary literature. As a poet, educator, historian, best-selling author, actress, playwright, civil-rights activist, producer, and director, she continues to travel the world, spreading her legendary wisdom. Angelou is the author of I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings (Bantam 1971), All God's Children Need Traveling Shoes (Random House 1986), Wouldn't Take Nothing for My Journey Now (Random House 1997), and Hallelujah! The Welcome Table: A Lifetime of Memories with Recipes (Random House 2007).

I found this to be a nice introduction to Maya Angelo. You get a touch of her background, a hint of her beliefs and a small glance of what her writings will offer.
