Each day, I take time to focus on gratitude. As Thanksgiving approaches, our collective national consciousness moves to that realm. I am grateful for so many things this month. My family is in good health, we eat delicious, nutritious, food supplied by our local sustainable farmers. I have friends who keep in touch, access to telemedicine, and a comfortable home.
I am also grateful to my reading audience. You have been very supportive and responsive. Thank you for the 52 ratings on Amazon and almost as many reviews! Reviews help prospective readers decide whether to buy my book. Anyone can review the book on Amazon if they are an Amazon customer, regardless of where they purchase the book. I also appreciate reviews on Acres USA and on Barnes and Noble. Thank you to all of you! If you have not reviewed the book yet, this is a reminder to do that when you can. Thank you!
I’m also grateful to those of you who are expanding the research on Guinea Hogs. You continue to give me leads on elders who remember the hogs, leads on descendants of people mentioned in the book I did not locate, etc. I’m acquiring material for a more expansive history of the American Guinea Hog. I’m also getting amazing information from history buffs with excellent skills. Thank you, Tori, Matthew, Michael, and Andrew, for articles and snippets from archives dating 1804 to 1949 that are hugely increasing knowledge of how early the Guinea Hogs were kept in the southern United States and the esteem with which they were held. It’s been very amazing.
