"Keith Barton gave me the encouragement to tackle a task I thought was impossible, a task that I thought I lacked the skills to complete. But encouraging me to start and then let the events flow enabled me to record the excitement and emotion of a period in my family's history that would otherwise never have been put to paper.
As the last surviving member of a family whose past is buried in the mining and rough-and-tumble early years of Joplin, Missouri, only I had the oral history that would save the story for grandchildren and great grandchildren. It wasn't a spectacular story, but one that involved events in the lives of every day people, but it was something I knew and wanted to share. Keith encouraged me in my plans to fill in the gaps of absolute knowledge with my imagination, and thereby create a story that, hopefully, carried the historical realities of my family and their relationships.
His coaching made it happen and I will be grateful forever."
