As I Remember : Collection of Newspaper Columns Volume I--8/19/98-10/17/01
by Shari Edwards




Overview -
"I left a town full of friends. A town of innocence, a town of easy living and lively shops. A town free of pollution and drugs, where you drank lemonade every summer afternoon. Doors were left unlocked and neighbors helped neighbors. That was my hometown, Willows, California 1956."

Shari returns to her hometown to find herself a stranger, an outcast. Walk with her as her moccasins lead her down the back streets of her childhood.

Shari found her Native American Heritage through a grandmother she never knew. She searched for a reason why her grandfather had left his two small sons in an orphanage in Sacramento, California, and never returned. She shares her father's stories and her pain as she watched him struggle against his enemy, Alzheimer's. Follow her into the school cafeteria as she faces the wrath of Mrs. Reidy in Terror in the Lunchroom.

Within the covers of As I Remember you will find "one-room schools," old "general stores," and a memorable old school teacher named Hattie. Shari opens the lid on her Prayer Jar so that we may take a peek inside. Memories like these will keep you from unraveling. It proves we are connected.
