Overview

The Wilder Family History: The True Life Journey of Lee Ander Wilder and Elizabeth Fancher Ramsey and Their Children by Donna Leach

The true life story of Lee Ander Wilder and his family as told by his children. The family's journey began in Arkansas at around 1899 when they traveled by covered wagon to Texas and then on to the Indian Territory (Oklahoma)where they stayed until 1913, and then came on to California by train. Lee Ander was a multi-talented individual, gifted musically both with a lovely singing voice and the gift to play most any instrument that he picked up. He was a law abiding man, in fact, he was in charge of closing down illegal moon-shine stills while in Arkansas and he was the peace-maker around Choska in the Indian Territory prior to Oklahoma joining the States. His wife, Elizabeth Fancher Ramsey, was a devout Christian and quite the marksman with her rifle. Together they raised 9 children. This book contains the memoirs from three of those children which weaves together the true story of their lives in an entertaining, humorous, and memorable fashion.

What pleasure it is to read about abundant love in a family.

This nonfiction book is 77 pages long. It is biographical and very interesting. I had read a little about the Mormon and Piutes killing pioneers on a wagon train before I read this book and I knew about the monument erected in the pioneers memory. This made the stories even more interesting. The book is written by the older Wilder family members and is about thier memories and experiences growing up. The grammer, sentence structure and punctation are not perfect, but for people of an advanced age and for the most part unschooled, this just adds flavor and realism to the story. I enjoyed this book very much and highly recommend it, even if you are not a fan of nonfiction or a history buff. For everyone. AD

Good stories with different perspectives of life for a family in the late 1800s/early 1900s.
