by Kermit Lipez

Although the author lived with his grandmothers in his childhood, he never asked them about their lives. Then, to discover their stories, he traveled the country in his thirties interviewing family and friends, and he wrote an account of his fascinating discoveries. Now, forty-five years after it was written, that original account, supplemented by new material, has become this book.


Kermit Lipez is a senior judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, having served on that court since 1998. He previously served nine years as a judge on the Maine Superior Court and four years on the Maine Supreme Judicial Court. He is also the author of Kenneth Curtis of Maine: Profile of a Governor.
