Unique Travel Experiences

Now that the kids are grown up and starting off their own adventures, it is the ideal time for you to get out of the house and start to explore the world once again. You’ve done the standard family trips which were more work than fun and now you’re ready for traveling on your own terms. Why not try something a bit different? 

Coal Camp Stranger

Mr. Anders had seen a family tossed out by hired men just hours after the father had been killed in a mine explosion. A woman heavy with child and four little children with nowhere to go tossed out like garbage. He could still hear her crying and screaming in Italian not understanding what was happening.

Bashful Smile

Could this child be a relative, maybe a distant cousin with those blonde eyelashes like mine and that nose that looks like my son’s?  I don’t recollect any family in the Scott’s Run area but sometimes families traveled when a mine closed.

I Just Read Yellow Crocus by Laila Ibrahim

This book is a must read it will give you a deeper more meaningful understanding of slavery beyond that of what you’re taught from a history book. It is one of the only books I have found that tells the story from the perspective of the women both slave and “free”. It’s a very powerful book and I am glad that after my mom finished it she recommended it to me.
