gift description:

Our loved ones make their footprints in the shifting sands of time, says author Pamela Pavuk. This beautiful memoir is an attempt to capture those footprints—not just for the person telling and recording the story but also for his and her family and for generations to come. The large, heavy-bound matte-finish hardcover book chronicles a person's life by asking questions, from "What is a typical family meal?" to "What was your engagement proposal like?" From the simple to the provocative, it asks almost 500 questions about careers, college, leaving home, parental relationships, raising kids, traditions and milestones. A great tool for self-discovery and reflection, the memoir is appropriate for all who want to learn more about themselves and to pass along their discoveries to the next generation.

Recommend this book to everyone August 14, 2012
"I bought this book of questions to answer about my life, to be filled out by me with photos, etc, almost as an accident. But once I received it, I knew I had made no mistake. This book should be a "must have" for everyone as they get older. It allows you to leave behind your life as you saw it, for anyone interested after you are gone. There must be several hundred questions in this nicely bound book ( with gold edges on paper and embossed with your name if you choose.) I am just skipping around and answering questions as my memory conjures them up. This is one of those things that you give as a gift to yourself as well as anyone else."

interesting purchase December 29, 2011
"Gave as a gift to my wife - only "problem" is some of the questions are not female oriented - like remembering their armed forces service times. It would be nice if they had a book for F & M choice."

Great Gift for any Family December 29, 2011
"I bought this for a close cousin of mine for his family. They were overwhelmed and mentioned that they had no idea that there were such books out there. They loved it. They have 2 grown children that are both married and have 2 children each of their own. I think it's an amazing keepsake."

Great gift! December 29, 2011
"I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my mother of 65 years of age. She has always talked about writing a book, but never did anything about it. Serious or not, I wanted to give her the opportunity. I think the best part about this book is that it offers the owner an opportunity to share memories and stories and really document a lifetime...and it offers prompts to help the author along the way. I'm sure my mother would have no idea where to start, but now she does! This will be a fantastic experience for her and will provide wonderful, loving documentation for the future. I think this would be an especially wonderful gift for a grandparent...either to write on his/her own, or perhaps with a child or grandchild as the recorder."
