Show Way This picture book - with intricate illustrations and page formats inspired by the traditions of quilting - imagines how family history is passed down in ways which inspire courage and hope. A parent pieces together the story of her child's ancestors, with scraps of memory reaching back to the time of slavery when quilting - like storytelling - was akin to a secret survival skill passed from mother to daughter. For later generations, quilts are venerated as artworks that commemorate the past and - like family stories - use history as 'show ways' to the future.
