My family has had a long line of story tellers in it. This is a story (I've confirmed it by the way) my grandfather always told about our struggle against slavery and a historic event that trumped their efforts.

About the Author

Each week on Sunday, I post a new article on my blog. As is smashwords, I am constantly trying to improve the site so it is easier for you to use. If you have a comment, please write me, and thank You! My first book "Titanic, A Search For Answers" was originally written as a fundraiser for a maritime museum where I was the advisory board president and a member of the board of trustees. Historical research is my hobby and influences much of my writing. So far for 2015, I have three new books scheduled for release, which will bring my total to fourteen. The first is "The Cartaphilus Saga: book #1 Amissio," scheduled for release on March 27, 2015. A submarine sailor for almost nine years, I am also an award winning artist. As a scuba diver I have dived sites from New England to the Caribbean. I am into music, art, wood carving, and pretty much anything that sounds like it could be fun or interesting. Once again, thank you very much. Take care and God bless you. Drop me a line ... I am glad to answer any questions you might have.

Love is something most only say about family. But, to open your heart to help others in hard times is a value of love that can't be measured. I loved this book. I wish more people had thought withh their heart instead of their wallets.

Short, but I liked it. It was very thoughtful and lovely. Honestly, I would be interested in reading a full length book of this.

A good insight as to the "days of ol'"... stories from our grandparents. It made me remember some of the stories I was told while growing up; some were not as impressive, but good memories just the same. It was also a bit of a history lesson on slavery and what happened "back in the day". Makes you appreciate what freedom is all about. An easy read and I will probably re-read it again.

I only wish it were a full book. Reading about the chances others are willing to take to help his fellow man is always touching. This is very short but I highly recomend it. I will be looking for this authors other works to find out what else is a family thing.

Anyone that would give 1-3 stars because of the Length of a book is not being a true critic, nor helping others to decide whether or not to read it for themselves. Please, for the ones of us who check out star ratings under the books, please rate the writing ability of authors only. Thanks

Though the book was a good read, the description is very misleading. I though that I’d be reading a book about an African American family’s struggles after slavery but I read a story about a white mans abolitionist struggles. I was very confused when I began to read about the slave auction.

That you will take to heart and long remember. It warmed my southern heart and gives me hope that love and kindness will trump the legacy of inhumanity.

I certainly would not call this a book by any means. It was a story only a couple of pages. It was a very good brief story but not a book.
