This is a deep and loving memoir by the daughter of Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson, legends in anthropology. The author looks back to an extraordinary childhood as she describes worlds found and created for her by parents who translated their passionate interests into images a child could share. Bateson does not describe an idyllic childhood, for the pain of separation was frequent and predictable. Her parents divorced, after living apart for years, when she was eleven. As an adult, anthropologist Mary C. Bateson became her parents' colleague. She recounts the fascinating paths traveled separately by each of these groundbreaking scientists, and describes complex ties that endured between Margaret and Gregory until their deaths. Includes notes and selected bibliography. Numerous photographs included within the text.; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
