When Maggie Comer left abject
poverty in the rural South, she never dreamed she would become the mother of

Told through Maggie’s own words and through those of her son
James—an award-winning child psychiatrist and brilliant educator—Maggie's American Dream is an unforgettable chronicle of
courage, resourcefulness, and pride.
