Papa Was A Boy In Gray

 
 

Prize-Winning Author

Mary W. Schaller
& Robert E. Tour the Country in 2001

Book Summary: In the closing years of the twentieth century, a small group of women gave new meaning to the words "living history." Some were merely old; others were spectacularly ancient. All of them shared a unique position in America's history. These ladies were the surviving daughters of the men who had fought for the Confederacy between 1861-1865.


PAPA WAS A BOY IN GRAY is a collection of twenty-one of these women's narratives chosen to represent a cross section of the Southern boys who shouldered their rifles and came of age amid the fiery whirlwind of war. Forged in the crucible of battle, the Confederate veterans left their indelible imprints upon their daughters, whose living legacy now casts a beam of light upon the vastly different world when Papa was a boy in gray.




Mary W. Schaller is the prize-winning author of four plays and seven historical novels set in the English Renaissance. Over a million copies of her books have appeared in print world-wide.

Mary W. Schaller will be accompanied by her special guest, Robert E. as she signs her book around the country.

Robert E. will send us reports, highlights, stories, and photos of all the Summer Excitement with Mary W. Schaller on her book tour of Papa Was A Boy In Gray.
