This is a collection of essays and talks on writing, stories, literacy, oral traditions, and UKL's approach to the craft of writing. I found it really interesting. She's so intelligent and real. She's a great person, I think. I feel related to her and would love to be like her. To me her stories have been sound spiritual nourishment since I was a girl. Maybe that's why I feel related to her, because she's taught me like a mother or an aunt for all of my life. Highly recommended for fans of UKL.
