I’m going to admit that I’m a little in awe of my Great Aunt Cora. She never hesitated to travel to the far reaches of the world. As we saw in my last post, Cora was seen traveling on an elephant and on a ship crossing the Atlantic.
Thanks to Stephen Barringer and his hunt through old pictures, Cora is seen here on a camel with her sister Mary Ruth.
As I write this, my husband and I are camping in Hibernia State Park. Now it only took us an hour to get here and the terrain is a little different from the one that Aunt Cora was in, but there are some rocks along the lake. And instead of camels, I am occupied by my faithful French Bulldog Vern.
And instead of pyramids, my husband and I are traveling with our camper.
And as for crossing the Atlantic, I haven’t personally taken a ship to Europe, but I can’t count the number of cruises I’ve been on.
I’m excited to share that my book, A Story of Durham: Told the Wright Way, is now available in hardback!
For the past two years, I have been researching and writing about my grandfather’s uncle, Richard Harvey Wright. When I began my search, I knew very little about this man except that he was one of the founding fathers of Durham, North Carolina. But what I discovered was a story of passion, love, and a determination to succeed with no boundaries. My new book, A Story of Durham: Told the Wright Way, will cause you to reflect on your own history and hopefully create in you a desire to study your past to understand your presence.
