AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In this compelling collection, eighty-nine writers traverse their particular territory of loss and bring back travellers’ tales. Their skilfully crafted accounts are insightful, inspiring, amusing, heart-breaking, resilient and, above all, damn good reading.

'‘This beautiful collection of writings explores the landscape of loss. It will meet you where you are. You’ll find yourself reaching for particular pieces that somehow articulate how you’re feeling, even before you’ve found the words to express it yourself… May this book become both a friend and a warm companion.’ - Petrea King, Quest for Life Centre'   (Publication summary)
