This is more than a book of poems written by Willie Myrtle Stewart. It is a life history of a journey taken by an African-
American woman who spent 99 years on this planet. The lyrics and memoirs are a window of that journey.
This publication is dedicated to the descendants of the Edwards and Craig family clans. Their African-American roots can be
traced back to the early 1800s in American history. A reflection on one's ancestral thoughts and roots, from whence they came, will serve as a guiding light and inspiration to a generation's future.
Captured in the written expressions of this book are the echoes of a journey taken in the earlier years of W. Myrtle Stewart's life. The illustrated words and extractions of her journaled memoirs and poems were compiled and interwoven together by her son and daughter.. This publication serves as a tribute to Myrtle's love of writing poetry and phrases of wisdom. She was always prepared to offer an impromptu message and loved being asked to cite a poem or give an inspirational word.
