Synopsis

Published in 1995, this lyrical, unsentimental, and compelling memoir, the son of a black African father and a white American mother searches for a workable meaning to his life as a black American. It begins in New York, where Barack Obama learns that his father--a figure he knows more as a myth than as a man--has been killed in a car accident. This sudden death inspires an emotional odyssey--first to a small town in Kansas, from which he retraces the migration of his mother's family to Hawaii, and then to Kenya, where he meets the African side of his family, confronts the bitter truth of his father's life, and at last reconciles his divided inheritance.

After reading 'The Audacity of Hope' I wanted to know more about how President Obama's background formed the upbeat, altruistic, intelligent ideas in his book.After reading 'Dreams From My Father', I ordered seven copies for family and friends. 'Dreams From My Father' shed light as to how Mr. Obama was able to formulate his humane, international, open, non-judgemental globallly informed, multi-cultural view of how best to lead America. It would be a wonderful book for American Middle and High School students to read and learn from.

About Discover Books

Our company was launched based on the fundamental belief that used books have value and should never go to waste. Prior to our founding, many of our staff worked in the thrift industry where we saw millions of books being sent to landfills each year. With each discarded book, we thought of the imagination, magic, and knowledge lost forever to a garbage heap and we endeavored to find a better way.

We think books should achieve their greatest possible purpose: Whether purchased by another reader, donated to help a child acquire the lifelong skill of literacy, or recycled as a new product, it has a story to tell. We let stories live on.

Glossary

Some terminology that may be used in this description includes:

spine
