I visit schools and libraries to speak to students about the incredible 60,000-mile journey I took in researching and writing my book,  Faces from the Past: Forgotten People of North America.

I can provide an overview of the entire book or concentrate on the chapters that are relevant to your specific curriculum (the contents include: Spirit Cave Man from Nevada, the Monacan Indians of Virginia, LaSalle's last expedition to the New World, a woman from colonial New York, the enslaved workers of a New York State farmstead, a Mexican soldier killed at the Battle of San Jacinto, the people of the almshouse, buffalo soldiers, and Chinese immigrants in Wyoming).
