5.0 out of 5 stars Giving a Voice to the Ancestors July 14 2003
Format:Paperback
I just finished reading "Giving a Voice to the Ancestors" and I can't tell you how fascinating this book was to me. I learned a lot of history, the Civil War, history as it happened in the South as well as the Cherokee Indian history. The vivid portrayal of the complete family was just wonderful. It was so touching to read a book with tales about actual people.
I'm sure reading this book brought back memories to others as it did to me. My father was a chef also. He smoked cigars and we played checkers together, so each time I read a piece that reminded me of something in my childhood it gave me little chills. I smiled, I shed a few tears and experienced all of the emotions that make you know you are reading a good book.

Format:Paperback
When words flow fluently creating pictures of places, and people and activity it is difficult to put "Giving a Voice to the Ancestors" aside. Quickly one becomes immersed into lives of anguish created by man's inhumanity to man.
Through the sadness is a reocurring theme:hard work, faith in God, and education does bring one security and dignity.
Thus Emily Allen Garland in a well-researched book, while giving us a glimpse into the life of slavery and bias, leaves the reader with a message of hope.

I thought the book was very well written. It was a nice history lesson about living in the South. An added bonus was reading about one branch of my family tree. I learned more about my relatives which was very interesting. I would recommend this book.
