In Praise of Ourselves: Stories to Tell

William A. Wilson writes of the importance of keeping family histories as a way to include ourselves and our families in the ever-expanding canon of literature and as a means of giving direction to our lives. Wilson shares his own family stories through the lives of his grandfather, Robert Green, and his mother, Lucile Green Wilson. Both were Mormon settlers in Riddyville, Utah. He tells of their adventures at Lake Bonneville and in McCammon and about their everyday family interactions.
