Book description
Wayne Busbice takes you along on his 70-year walk through history, beginning life in a Waltonesque family on a Louisiana backwoods cotton farm. The undercurrent of Wayne's life was a driving need to uncover the secret: a killing the adults whispered about. Wayne discovered he was living under a false name; Cousin Allen was really his grandfather, and Allen had lived a double life as a fugitive. Along the way Wayne developed an intense interest in genealogy. He unearthed court records, news articles and family letters documenting the murder of his other grandfather, an event that fractured the family and had untold emotional and financial consequences. These two story lines, set against a background of warm and intimate family life, animate this charming memoir of a vanished time.
