A wonderful book about a amazing author. Zora Neale Hurston was an author, anthropologist and a playwright. She worked many jobs in her life because she never made money during her lifetime. She spun tales of her life as easily as she recorded folk tales and stories around her. In fact she disappointed some fans in death as they discovered her tall tales about her own life. This book is intended for young adults as a nonfiction reference book but is so much more. It is completely readable. I am an adult and learned so much from this book. Highly recommended.
