To Eileen, a young friend who has grown into a beautiful woman—both inside and out. I can’t thank you enough for your giving spirit and your help in making this book the best it can be.
To Becka, daughter extraordinaire! Another beautiful woman for which I can take very little credit. Thanks for your help in so many ways. How could I write without your encouragement and inspiration?
Also to the Henry County Museum Complex who allowed the use of their authentic log cabin on the cover of this book. They have a wonderful museum well worth the time to visit. The 1856 Dog Trot and settlement are a part of the Henry County Museum Complex located at 203 W. Franklin, Clinton, Mo.
