Excerpt: Grandmother lands in Atlanta

[My grandmother Eglé de Villelume-Sombreuil Gatins arrived in Atlanta in 1914, an event that marked her for life. That part of the story is now to be found on Like The Dew: A Journal of Southern Culture & Politics. Click below to view the entire, 1,500-word excerpt.]

Such a great story and nice to see pictures to be able put faces with the names. Your book contains important pieces of history not to be missed. Wishing you many readers for all your hard work and extensive research.

Spent the last period of time reading all of the excerpts. I'm blown away and excited that I'm going to get to read the whole thing soon. There aren't many people that take the time and energy to produce something so important. Impressed Joe.
