This book is a collection of stories, historical tidbits, genealogy, photos, and author notes woven together to tell one family's story from pre-removal to modern times. This isn't simply a book on one family's history with dry facts and records. It's information for anyone interested in Choctaw culture and history to consume in bite size, easy to understand text and photos.
I thoroughly enjoyed this quick read that not only covered centuries, but tales of the enduring spirit of a family and their faith that stood the test of time. The point of view was delightful, written in an often humorous tone as imagined by the author of one of her ancestors.
Well done account. I hope there will more books like this in the near future to help preserve the history of our people.
