I lost my beloved grandmother over 20 years ago. I missed her increasingly over the years, and decided that with the skills that I had, I would pay it forward and interview and photograph over people's grandmothers. I needed them in my life, and wanted their wisdom. This personal project turned into a book and my life is so much fuller because of their love and kindness. They shared so others could learn. ~ scroll down to watch videos and see photos of them. 

This window into the Mississippi Delta is a labor of love by Alysia Steele -- to bring us to the lives of the warrior queens and rescuers known as grandmothers. To meet them is to be rescued and inspired. If they did so much, who are we not to do whatever we can. Buy the book."
