Vivian Family Genealogy Forum
Hi! I just found this site and wanted to tell you about a book that I recently read. It is called The Summer of Our Rebellion by Elizabeth Ashley Ruffin. I met her in Austin at the Texas Historical Society meeting when she was doing a book signing. A nice lady from Nashville, TN. I really enjoyed her book and the way she divided it into two parts. The first part is a romance classic told through the eyes of Capt. John Vivian and his participation in Bacon's Rebellion. The second part really gives a wonderful log of chronological events, some rare Virginia maps, family shields, and a list of descendants to the present. I can't tell you how much I enjoyed meeting her and reading The Summer of Our Rebellion. I told her that it would make a terrific movie! If you enjoy classics or history or reading about this family, it should go on your coffee table too! Perhpas, your name may be in it. If you want to know how to reach Ruffin, I would be pleased to pass your notes along. In the back of her book is this address WWW.Brooksmedi.com/summer.htm. for ordering but I do not know if it still there.
