Journeys of Grief and Loss
by Dr. Maple Melder Crozier

Based completely on lived experience, this book shares the similar and different journeys that people have taken after the loss of a child, a life partner, or a parent. Every circumstance is unique, and has its own pain and joy. The history and cultures discussed show the variety of ways that death is dealt with globally, helping us to see past western styles of grieving. The art forms of music and books and poetry provide support for the sometimes roller-coaster journey of grief and loss.
