Description - Unrooted Childhoods by Faith Eidse

With their identities built piece by cultural piece, the authors of these stories recall the benefits and pain of growing up without the chance to put down roots. They are unrooted children who grow up without having the sense of home and often without knowing who they are.The book is divided into four sections focussing on the most commonly shared themes of the unrooted child's experience: enrichment, estrangement, rootlessness and identity.Individual contributors explore the importance of language, the dualitites of loyalties, estrangement and loneliness, and portable identities that come with the unpredictability of nomadic life.These stories help adult nomads, whether they be third culture kids or not, experience a sense of recognition and emotional kinship with these authors. And for those who have not been nomads, these stories are simply a great read.
