I come from the breath of plants.
I come from green mountains.
I come from stories from two continents.
I come from ocean crossings.

We come from place, language, and spirit.
And each of us comes from story. We all come from something. Together, four authors lyrically explore the elements that shape who they are. Weaving together their individual stories, they explore place, ancestors, movement, struggle, determination, and hope.

Powerful poetic text and richly layered illustrations bring together past and present, creating an accessible and visually striking look at family, history, and identity.
