When a Griot Dies: A Tree Lifts Its Roots to the Moon 2013.
This small book was written and published by family and friends of the extraordinary griot and storyteller, Opalanga Pugh. These are stories from her final months, through her “healing journey,” and the legacy she left, from a community of love and care that spanned decades and continents.
Middlehood women from forty to sixty-five are in a rich and challenging time of life, full of contradictory feelings brought on by our growing strengths and the waning of familiar ways of life. It often feels like a mountain climb, full of glorious vistas, sudden storms, and winding trails.
Women & Middlehood: Halfway Up the Mountain is an exploration and celebration of how women journey through this unique time of our lives. It draws upon one of the most powerful methods that women often use for negotiating change in our lives: we talk to other women. Each of us has a wealth of experience, and when that is joined with the experiences of other women, we create a veritable well of wisdom for ourselves and others. In that spirit, many women contributed stories, experiences and insights to this book.
“Anything that changes the language and beliefs we have about midlife is a really, really good thing--because...our beliefs have a profound effect on our biology and thus our experience. So, I love the way you reframe "middle age" to "middlehood." And also encourage women to tell themselves a new, empowering story. As you say, not a fairy tale--but a truly empowering new story full of possibilities... Bravo. Well done!!”
Dr. Christiane Northrup, New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause.
“Women & Middlehood is not your average self-help book. Instead, it is an uplifting and powerful tool for all women, one that deserves to be passed on and shared within the circle of our sisterhood.” Khadijah A., Story Circle Book Reviews

“The power of this book, Women and Middlehood: Halfway up the Mountain, by Jane Treat and Nancy Geha, is how it allowed—encouraged—celebrated my saying “yes” to my life. Not my perfect, in shape, super-heroic life, but my real life. Our lives are rich! My God, how much we’ve learned and how hard some of those lessons have been!”
