Down Home in Arkansas

Down Home in Arkanasa

As winter turns to spring and spring to summer it brings with it the change in season and the family reunion tradition. Families all over the world come together for some as much as once a year to reunite, socialize, strengthen family ties and relationships, and learn about family history.

Such is the tradition with the writer’s family. Maria Hoskins recalls how fun, exciting, and entertaining her family is during the bi-annual family reunion holiday. Maria hopes each reader will enjoy her family reunion story and draw on the commonality readers will experience as they associate their family reunion with the writer’s family reunion story. Also included with the story are group activities and an ancestry resource guide for each reader to use at their next family reunion.



"Down Home in Arkansas, A Family Reunion Story allows the reader a vehicle to drive the lanes of their historical landscape. The view includes historical context connecting the driver to times past while introducing current visions of the same lanes of history. It promotes fluidity of conversation between generations while exposing the connection between generations.”
