The wisdom and experience of the eight women profiled in this 1993 series by filmmaker Catherine Busch-Johnston can serve as models for all who hope to realize their potential and express their creativity while living lives reflecting their values, self-esteem, and cultural traditions. The series fills a gap brought on by the changing scope of the family unit and demonstrates the mentoring process, for which we all have a basic need. Each episode not only offers a glimpse of timeless wisdom, but also provides solid reminders to
appreciate and cultivate our own relationships with one of our most valuable resources: our elders.
