This long-awaited memory book for the field of narrative practice contains exquisitely diverse stories from the 1970s and 1980s. In these pages, Cheryl White has sought to include perspectives that are not usually included in formal or academic histories. In this regard, this book is a social history that uncovers the traces, experiences and impact of ordinary people. The stories honour the diverse contributions of children, friendships, coincidence, social movements, and cross-cultural partnerships. Here you will find stories that are in turn enchanting, profound, hilarious, challenging, and unexpected. It is hoped these histories will provide a foundation for continued innovations, creativities, and generative partnerships.
