Overview

The Ladies Historical Society is proud to take you on a tour through the rich history of our fair town. From its humble founding by the ill-fated explorer Percival Rumph, to its most famous mayor, Arthur Blackburn, Portsong stands out as a place of culture and flair. Meet Mortimer Lee, who is singlehandedly responsible for saving the city from the Yankee's path of destruction during the War Between the States. You will even get a laugh at the incident now referred to as The Great Sheep Donnybrook of 1908. It's all here in our little booklet we call, A Concise History of Portsong. Why, it's almost as good as sippin' lemonade on Ms. Prattlematt's back porch.

About the Author

As the father of four daughters, Mark Myers spends his days in a frilly pink world lined with ballet slippers and much drama. Oddly enough, his favorite thing to write about is mischievous boys and the trouble they cause. He cut his teeth as a boy and little brother in Louisville, Kentucky but now resides in Georgia with his wife, daughters, two overweight retrievers and a manipulative cat with no name. In his spare time, he enjoys running and reading classic literature. Mark has a particular heart for Africa and orphan-related causes. In his writing, he strives to weave moral truth and humor into a story that is relevant and engaging to children. One of the greatest compliments he's ever received came from a woman who said: "thank you for showing me what goes on inside a boy's mind." Not much goes on in there, you can be sure of that.

Mark Myers has created a delightful early American South community of whimsical characters whom you just might know today. True to his word, Mark presents a very concise history highlighting the fictional Georgia town of Portsong--so concise that you can finish the book in one hour. But it is a fun and thoughtful creation very much worth reading and a necessary foundation for understanding how the story continues in other books of the series.
