My Home As I Remember is an anthology of women's literary and artistic achievement produced by Native Women in the Arts. This publication contains memoir, poetry, fiction, song and visual art by 62 Native women representing nearly 25 Nations, including well-known and beginning writers. The theme for this volume is Home - its meaning, the connection of house with body, mind and spirit, the home we have always dreamed of, and home in a variety of landscapes. The quality of the writing by First Nations, Metis, Inuit and Indigenous women from Hawai'I, New Zealand and Mexico is exceptional.

Her subject matter reveals the interests and observations of a contemporary Native woman living in North America. A sampling of themes and issues reveal poems about Zeller's, Leonard Peltier, her daughter, Nelson Mandela, Nicaragua, and El Salvador. Lee Maracle is a prolific Aboriginal writer whose work blends prose and poetry. This important collection is her first book of poetry.
