"Billie and the Boys" is a sequel to the acclaimed memoir "To Bear Witness." This collection of family stories, set in the 1950s and 1960s, seamlessly follows an evolving family from the rural communities of eastern Oklahoma to the canyons and pine forest of northern Arizona to the bustling city of Tulsa. From the birth of a child to baseball to Christmases, family legend is adeptly blended into personal experience providing the reader with a narrative that is philosophically and intellectually stimulating, wise and witty.

The images of a pristine northern Arizona as it existed in the middle of the 20th century are uniquely captivating and satisfying. The descriptions of family dynamics are spot on.

Still at its core, the anthology is a mesmerizing love story.
