  Five Sisters: The LANGHORNEs of Virginia icon
One of the most interesting books I've read in years! This was written by James Fox,  grandson of Phyllis Langhorne Brand, who had access to sources that most biographers can only dream of.

The LANGHORNE sisters were Southern beauties whose influence spanned an ocean.  Lizzie was one of the most celebrated belles of her day. Irene married Charles Dana GIBSON and was a model for "The Gibson Girl." Nancy would marry Waldorf ASTOR and became the first female member of the British Parliament. Phyllis (the author's grandmother) married the British economist Bob Brand. Nora, the baby, led a dreamy, scatterbrained life that brought her family a good deal of worry. She was the mother of actress Joyce Grenfell. Lizzie, married to Moncure Perkins, would be the mother of influential interior designer Nancy Lancaster (of Colfax & Fowler fame).

I really enjoyed the detailed descriptions of Virginia life in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. I became familiar with the social ritual of going to "The Springs," the rough and tumble of rural Virginia politics, and many other traditions that would mostly die out by the mid 20th century.  It's a terrific read!

The Family of John LEWIS, Pioneer

"When John Lewis 'slew the Irish lord' and fled to America in 1729, he established a prominent family which has maintained its identity for more than two and a half centuries. His sons Thomas, Gen. Andrew, William and Col. Charles, raised in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley near Staunton, had important roles in American Revolutionary times. This book records more than 9,200 descendants, with some biographical information on more prominent ones. It also sorts out conflicting stories and myths in perhaps the most balanced presentation of the many published through the years about John Lewis and his family."

  POLK's Folly: An American Family History icon

This is a wonderful book! Every genealogist will appreciate Mr. Polk's family story, and every Southern genealogist will recognize familiar themes.

"While just a young boy growing up in Texas, still playing cowboys and Indians in what was once Comanche country, William R. Polk listened excitedly to stories from his aging grandmother "Molly" Harding Polk. Molly was a child, and later bride, of the American Civil War, and had grown up listening to stories from her grandfather, born during the Revolutionary War. 'So, in just two memories,' William R. relates, 'I had laid out for me tales of the entire history of the United States.'

"This upbringing gave Polk a start in understanding both his country's history and that of his family--which, as it turns out, lays claim to more than a few noteworthy Americans. Later a teacher at Harvard and history professor at the University of Chicago (not to mention a state department vet under both Johnson and Kennedy, making William R. a formidable American in his own right), Polk turned his professional scrutiny to studying this remarkable lineage, which includes comrades-in-arms of George Washington, more than a few plucky frontiersmen (one who was accused of shooting the sheriff of Laredo--in self-defense, of course), a four-star general who was a brilliant WWII tank commander under Patton, a feisty lawyer who defended Martin Luther King, and America's tireless 11th president, James Knox Polk.

"Using these lives and the intimate stories surrounding them, Polk traces the story of our country in a meaningful, personal, and coherent way, "hang[ing] my tale of American history on a sort of 'backbone,' composed of my family.' "
