AuthorHouse, Jan 28, 2004 - Health & Fitness - 120 pages

The first maxim of writing is to "write about what you know." The author, Lena Irene Siler, definitely has done just that in this delightful book tracing the lives of her ancestors and the fascinating journeys they experienced.

In this semi-autobiographical novel, you will meet true pioneers, itinerant preachers, farmers, scalawags and mule-skinners. Join the coal miners who braved death every time they descended in to the tunnels to bring out the fuel that powered this nation's emergence as a world power.

Dealing with drought, floods, harsh winters and lack of modern medicines, these hardy souls threw themselves into a difficult battle with nature, corporate greed and deprivation. They worked together, worshiped together and helped their neighbors in every way possible. In spite of the terrible odds they faced, they persevered and became the spirit of America, proud, strong and willing to do whatever it took to make a new home for themselves and their families.

Lena has done an amazing amount of research, delving into governmental records, journals and, of course, her own personal history. These are her people and she presents them to you as real heroes. These are stories of hope and faith you will treasure.
