According to local tradition, marriage is considered a foreign practice- property is passed from mother to daughter- a matriarch oversees each familys customs, rituals, and economies. In this culture a young girl enjoys extraordinary freedoms-but the impulsive, restless Namu is driven to leave her mothers house, to venture out into the larger world, defying the tradition that holds Moso culture together. LEAVING MOTHER LAKE is a book filled with drama, strangeness, and beauty.

Yet for all the exoticism, Namus story is a universal tale of mothers and daughters-the battles that drive them apart and the love that brings them back together.
