About the Book
This is an illustrated family history, a bottom-up inverted triangle of forebears with the author and his sister at the bottom. Parents and grandparents are described from personal recollections; more distant ancestors form a primarily English lineage that crossed the Atlantic to Virginia and made its way to Arkansas by various routes.
I grew up in McGehee, Arkansas, and I practiced cardiology in Fort Smith, Arkansas, from 1969 to 2003. Having majored in English at the University of Arkansas, I have enjoyed pursuing several reading and writing projects, including this collection of personal family recollections and more remote family historical information. My wife Mary and I have three children and seven grandchildren. Other interests include photography, tennis, and running.
