Item Description...
Crouch over an open fire near the Guatemalan border while Cecelia teaches the significance of making the small tortilla. Sit under a cashew tree in Belize on a quiet rainforest afternoon and answer the young Mayan mothers' question: 'How can we make no more babies come?' Hold Ermine in your arms in a courtyard amid the children and the chickens and weep with her as she shares her poignant story of war. Careen down a rut-filled, twisting mountain road in the Kosovo countryside, racing for the hospital. Will you make it before Hamide's baby delivers? In a colorful tapestry woven with culture and experience, author Nancy Leigh Harless invites readers along on her real-life journey in Womankind. In her collection of inspiring, sometimes heart-wrenching experiences, readers will encounter and learn from the many different women of Nancy's travels. Live, laugh, and love with women around the world as you join the sisterhood of Womankind.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Landscape of the human heart  Jul 19, 2008
I often wonder as I am watching scenes on television of unbelievable suffering spawned by wars, poverty and natural disasters how the people who come to aid to those in desperate need manage. Not having the charity in my soul of the self-sacrificing saints I see administering to the sick, and wounded around the world it is hard for me to understand. I wonder what enables those from an essentially safe haven like the United State to help those abroad without any concerns about their own safety. Nancy Leigh Harless has answered that question for me. In all of the stories in her well-written, fun easy to read collection Womankind she shares the powerful emotional connection she received with other women while she served as a nurse in underdeveloped Belize and war- torn Kosovo.
My favorite story is about a woman of the upper class in Belize encapsulated in the confines of machismo expressing herself in a riveting, erotic dancer before other women. This seemed to me a very strong statement about the universal sensuality of all women. The fact that women all over the world beg Nancy for "no more children" re-enforced my belief that birth control was the single most liberating factor in my own life. But, her experience with her friend who declares herself a minimalist on a sailing trip along the coast of Panama was the story I identified with the most. I am an adventure travel writer. My stories speak about finding balance and harmony with self, and therefore society, through nature. Critics tell me I am too absorbed with capturing a sense of place and do not have enough human interaction between myself and native cultures in my stories. I have a lot to learn from Nancy about the landscape of the human heart and why people go to strange places extending a helping hand to those in need. The payback is not just the glad faces of children able to laugh again; it is a process that re-instates your own humanity.

For any woman seeking inspiration and to share a sisterhood with others.  May 6, 2008
"Life can stretch your soul or tear your spirit..." "Womankind" is a collection of stories from six women from around the world and anthologized by Nancy Leigh Harless who has collected them in her travels and experiences as a nurse. The stories are truly far reaching and range from Belize to Kosovo, but readers will identify with their tales and relate through their common status as women of the world. High recommended for community library women's issues shelves, or for any woman seeking inspiration and to share a sisterhood with others.
Incredible book  Dec 18, 2007
This book became an instant classic for me. I would highly recommend reading this poignant collection of vignettes from around the world that highlights the international connection between women.
Many Reasons to be Thankful  Dec 1, 2007
As I finished this book about Thanksgiving time, I felt more strongly about things I am thankful for: For living in the US with all our freedoms and opportunities, and having the the access to food and material things that makes life much more enjoyable. But I am also thankful and grateful for people such as the author who have made personal sacrafices to bring relief to those in third-world countries who are really hurting. The author is able to transport one from the comfort of his/her recliner, stimulating all the senses to bring the feeling of being in places we may be too uncomftable to visit in real life. I like the aspect of the book being a collection of individual, short stories. One can finish a story quickly, and then have time to reflect on it's significance.
MUST READ  Nov 7, 2007
Wonderful book! I savored every story. The struggles, the humanity. This is going to be a Xmas gift for all the women I know.
