Travels with My Daughter by Niema Ash
As a single mom in the 1960s, Niema Ash had to balance her overwhelming desire to travel with the responsibilities of motherhood. Finding the confidence to believe in herself and her instincts, Niema managed to raise her daughter while mixing with some of the most talented poets and musicians of our time, including Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Irving Layton, Seamus Heaney, and Joni Mitchell. Along the way, she developed a unique bond with her daughter that many mothers could only dream about. This is a humorous memoir filled with celebrations of travel, motherhood, and life itself.
