Sally Mann may perhaps best known from her collection of photographs entitled Immediate Family, a collection of nude black and white photos of her children. This memoir is the raw footage of her life so far and what a grand treasure it is.

Narrated with such grace, humor, honesty and sometimes wonder, Sally Mann revisits all the corners of her life - from her quite literally wild childhood, to the fierce passions of her marriage, photography, motherhood, and connection to land and horses. The lonely and meticulous process of producing art and the consequences of public scrutiny are quite vivid in this memoir, as well as the terror of notoriety. But what resonates most of all is her wise and peaceful resolve. Clearly, these are valuable life stories from an artist who dares to be original and by doing so has arrived at herself. ~ Reviewed by Nancy Scheemaker
