Sand and stone are Earth’s fragmented memory. Each of us, too, is a landscape inscribed by memory and loss. One life-defining lesson Lauret Savoy learned as a young girl was this: the American land did not hate. As an educator and Earth historian, she has tracked the continent’s past from the relics of deep time; but the paths of ancestors toward her―paths of free and enslaved Africans, colonists from Europe, and peoples indigenous to this land―lie largely eroded and lost. A provocative and powerful mosaic that ranges across a continent and across time, Trace grapples with a searing national history to reveal the often unvoiced presence of the past.
