About the Book

Southwest Georgia’s past is like a kaleidoscope. Each turn presents more happenings and more adventures. In River Rover Chronicles 2, we will go on a journey that will take us back through time to when Georgia was born. Then, we venture on ahead to the present.

We will take part in the events which shaped our heritage. In this book, you will learn of an explosion of such magnitude that it was felt hundreds of miles away; hunt the largest bird to ever exist on Earth, which lived in Georgia; meet pirates and the feisty girl that tamed them; make your way through a dense swamp to survive an Indian battle, and more. So, come along—if you dare!!

About the Author

My fascination with history started when as a little girl, I would play for hours in my Aunt’s attic. It contained many “treasures” from the by gone days. I would look through her old photo albums and try to think what life must have been like way back then.

With the imagination of a five year old, I transported myself back in time where I’d be riding in a horse drawn carriage or wearing the long dresses of a Gibson girl of the 1800s or the short, spangled dresses of the 1920s flapper.

There is also my love for the water. Having lived my early life on the shores of Lake Erie and also living on an island, water and boats are essential to my happiness.

All of this sparked a fire which has burned within me my whole life and it hasn’t diminished one bit. I love putting myself on the banks of our rivers and becoming an early settler or a pirate or a woman trying to survive in a sometimes hostile world.

I also love to do the research and uncover little known information to enrich the stories. I feel like a cold case detective, something which, if I could, I’d love to be.
