Nobody's Mother free pdf Statistics say that one in 10 women has no intention of taking the plunge into motherhood. 'Nobody's Mother' is a collection of stories by women who have already made this choice. From introspective to humorous to rabble-rousing, these are personal stories that are well and honestly told. The writers range in age from early 30s to mid-70s and come from diverse backgrounds. All have thought long and hard about the role of motherhood, their own destinies, what mothering means in our society and what their choice means to them as individuals and as members of their ethnic communities or social groups. Contributors include: Lorna Crozier, well-known poet and the author of a dozen books, as well as the recipient of a Governor General's award and numerous other writing prizes Maggie De Vries, children's-book editor and author of Missing Sarah, a memoir about her sister, one of the murdered women from Vancouver's downtown east side Kate Braid, a creative-writing instructor whose books include Inward to the Bones: Georgia O'Keeffe's Journey with Emily Carr, To This Cedar Fountain, Red Bait!
