Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Tribe of Women" is photojournalist Bickman's celebration of women throughout the world in 200 beautiful full-color photos and thoughtful prose.

Synopsis:

Connie Bickman has spent over a decade documenting, in photographs and writing, the personal stories of women of every creed, color, language, and class. Tribe of Women collects the best of her work. Bickmans travels have taken her down the Amazon on a boat and up the Great Pyramid of Cheops. From the Muslim woman who risked her life in letting her picture be taken (only her eyes showed through the opening in her veil), to the clay-covered Nomadic woman in Namibia carrying a goat like a cloak, to the young girls around the village of Medugorje, where the Madonna is alive to the faithful, Bickmans subjects share the bond of humanity and service — service to their families, their communities, and their gods. Tribe of Women invites the reader to discover these women and their worlds through the lens and pen of a generous observer. Includes 200 full-color photographs.
