About Mary Schultz

An incurable traveler, Mary Schultz has trekked Chile’s Atacama Desert and Easter Island to learn about the visual astronomy of ancient peoples. Together with her husband, she has explored the Mayan ruins of Mexico and Central America, lived and sailed aboard a 41 ft. ketch, and camped from Alaska to the Panama Canal. Mary Schultz’ personal essays have been anthologized: When A Life Mate Dies: Stories of Love, Loss and Healing (Healing with Words Series) by Susan Heinlein; her short fiction has appeared in Yokoi, the Bozeman, Montana occasional arts magazine, and the Mendocino Review to name a few. If you are familiar with Apple Computer, City of Hope, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, publications focused on software solutions for architecture, engineering and construction, and Total Gym, over decades you have likely read Mary’s award-winning advertising & marketing writing.

Review by: BillMcAlister on Oct. 24, 2017 :
“A Way West, R.P. McAlister Family History and Genealogy" is an engaging and entertaining look at the origins and history of the families that ultimately produced Raymond P. McAlister. The tales of family adventures, accomplishments, and relationships provide insights into the man and how circumstances likely shaped him. The research done by the author is through and remarkable in its extent and detail. Also, a bit of humor adds to the stories’ enjoyment.

The only disappointment I have is the absence of photos, drawings and maps. I would love to see pictures of the families, places they lived, celebrations they had, copies of important historical records, and especially images of the wonderful buildings and homes designed by Glenn C. McAlister.

I sincerely hope there will be a print version available in the future that will include images that will help us visualize how things were on the way west.
