1-on-1 with Cheri Hudson Passey: Featuring Guest Cindy Roe Littlejohn, Author of Palmetto Pioneers

Author Cindy Roe Littlejohn joins me to discuss her family history book Palmetto Pioneers: The Immigrants. She explains how she came to write this creative non-fiction work and the importance of sharing your family story.

From years of research to put it all together in narrative form, Palmetto Pioneers is an example of how to put flesh on the bones to tell family stories.

She shares the story of Mary Adeline Walker from the low country of South Carolina and the journey she takes with her family to what was then considered the wilds of Florida.

Watch as Cindy shares how this book can help people interested in writing their own family narrative and also be a resource for those with ancestors who lived in the location during this time in South Carolina and Florida history.

Palmetto Pioneers: The Emigrants: Before there were cowboys, pioneers, frontier justice, and Indian wars in the Old West, there was frontier Florida. Florida, before statehood, had it all plus alligators, humidity, and mosquitos. The narrative-nonfiction book, Palmetto Pioneers: The Emigrants, describes what it was like for a family who moved there in 1829.
