Many individuals have spent countless hours attempting to track their family genealogy. It is often published as a boring family tree. This author did a great job of using his family research as a basis for a book describing life in colonial America. The writer describes life as he remembers rural America and the traditions carried forward by generations of his family. The hardships of life on the frontier are balanced with the more enjoyable times as described in the haying or corn husking tasks or the play of children of the pioneer family. Life is not glamorous nor a tragedy but presented as facts of life. The title "The Wooden Bible" is introduced at the end of this family genealogical-based book and establishes a foundation for future stories of immigrant families in early America.

WOW, what a dynamic story of early immigration. You figuratively crawl into the minds of the early settlers and feel their pain. I read this over and over; getting a deeper knowledge of their lives each time.
