Reader Comment: “Books come and go off my coffee table but I Am Because We Are: African Wisdom in Image and Proverb will remain on it quite awhile.  The proverbs collected by Annetta Miller and exquisite black and white photography by Betty Press make this book a treasure to own and share.” Christian Science Monitor Reader recommendation
