I'm a sucker for women's history, especially that which is overlooked and undervalued. This book checked all of my boxes. It's a moving account of a common item, a cotton sack, that was kept through several generations of Black women, lost, and then found. It is currently in the National Museum of African American History and Culture. The story is that Ashley, a 9 year old slave, was given this sack by her mother, Rosa, when Ashley was sold and the two were separated. The sack was embroidered by Ashley's granddaughter, Ruth, in the 1920s as follows:

My great grandmother Rose
mother of Ashley gave her the sack when
she was sold at age 9 in South Carolina
it had a tattered dress 3 handfulls of
pecans a braid of Roses hair. Told her

It be filled with my Love always
she never saw her again
Ashley is my grandmother

Ruth Middleton
1920

In this book, Miles tries to uncover who these women were and their life story. Little is known or there to be discovered, as is not surprising, but she also explores each object include in the sack and why it might have been. She spends time delving into common life experiences of women who lived during the times mentioned. She also explores life for the unfree living in South Carolina.

This book pays homage to authors like [[Laurel Thatcher Ulrich]] whose work in [The Art of Homespun] takes a detailed look at women's lives through objects and craft, and to [[Robin Wall Kimmerer]]'s book [Braiding Sweetgrass] for exploring the Indigenous and Black American connection to each other and land. These are two books I loved and was happy to make a further connection to.

This is a fascinating book and I highly recommend. I'm taking one half star off because there were a few places that I felt the book was just a bit over-written and padded to make up for the lack of information available, but it is a tiny complaint and wasn't an over-arching problem. ( )

This was such a poignant book. We live in a society where we give lots of importance to materialistic things, so it’s fascinating to explore how a single such item can convey the traumatic history of a whole group of people. While talking about how a single bag was passed down through generations, the author manages convey to us the horrors of enslavement, how the lives of enslaved women were for decades, and how difficult it was for them to even own something, let alone pass it down, when they themselves were considered property. Add to it the fact that families were separated very often, it’s truly a story of resilience that the author narrates to us here.

Very compelling and engaging read and I would definitely recommend to readers who would love to read books about African American history from different perspectives. ( )
