The Thompson Family

The Thompson Family: Untold Stories From The Past (1830-1960) is the first of several volumes of books written by Dr. Walter B. Curry, Jr. that tell the history and stories of the Thompson family throughout the past. The book is primarily narrative essays and analyses, however, it also contains an introduction, the genesis, pictures and so much more that ensures readers feel like they know the people the author is writing about, and readers feel with them and for them. In this illuminating book, you will read about Milledge Thompson who freed himself and his family from slavery, Otis Thompson who had so many vocations throughout his life and so many more interesting and accomplished people.

The author writes in a very clear and straightforward tone but still manages to provide us with vivid imagery and details that lead the reader on a phenomenal visual journey. As we travel throughout the pages of this family saga it almost feels like we are right there with these people experiencing everything they are experiencing.  We visit and get touched by so many lives just by turning from one page to another.

The author writes about people that are deceased, but also about people who are still live and well. In any case, the author is able to describe these people in a beautiful and compelling tone that leaves the reader with a genuine and sincere presentation of who these people were, what they have done, loved, and fought for.

Another thing I loved about this morally and spiritually uplifting book is that it contains so many peoples’ stories written so engagingly in several short essays that it leaves you wanting to find out more about these intriguing people, their ancestors, and their descendants.

The Thompson Family: Untold Stories From The Past (1830-1960) is a well-crafted and and well-researched book that details a stirring and inspirational history of so many impressive people. Readers will learn about a collection of little-known but exceptional people and read of achievements that were hard won but rarely shared.
