A very dry but well-researched book. I very much appreciate her work on the subject.

The author spent years with Moroccan women in various Berber villages in the same region where I'm serving as a Peace Corps volunteer. She outlines the ways women's connections (sometimes romanticized) to homeland keep Tashelheit culture and language alive. It has confirmed and given voice to my own observations of the women in this region, while broadening my outlook by allowing me a glimpse inside smaller, more rural villages. An invaluable find during my service in Morocco.

An interesting ethnography, but it could have been about half as long.
