55 stars plus!!  Apr 07, 2009
By Erica Mclain "avid reader"
If only I could put into words what this book meant to me, it would speak volumes. Each time I had to put the book down, I would hold it close to my heart and feel the love and hard work that was put into it. This book touches on family, history, love, generosity, commitment, all the values that this current generation needs to learn.
Even if you're not a part of the Davidson family, it is a GREAT READ!!!

4A piece of History  Mar 31, 2009
By Easy "Par 4"
What an interesting read.... A great book for young people today, it speaks volumes about the hardships our parents, grandparents, and various relatives went through in the early days. This should be required reading for anyone under 50!!! Every family should make this gargantuan undertaking a must! Kudo's to Davidson for the effort to record history before it is lost.
