Long lives yield many treasures: pictures, keepsakes, property, or savings, the standard currencies of inheritance passed on from generation to generation. But there is another precious legacy, one that is often lost: memories, the closely held images of people, places, and things that are the blueprint of life. Nationally syndicated columnist Bob Greene and his sister, journalist D.G. Fulford, have created an attractive and engaging guidebook that makes recording a personal history as uncomplicated and easy as writing a letter. A brief introduction sets the ton of fond remembrance, followed by chapters of questions designed to elicit answers that will form the patchwork of a fascinating personal history.
