Author Russell Francis of Mechanicsville Virginia, brings to life a series of stories, of what it is like when you have a large close and loving family. Sprinkled with southern history, mystery, and kids’ imagination in the early 1950’s and 60’s. Stories from the innocent adventures and mis-adventures of their growing up with dogs, frogs, and great

“River Summers.”

   

Born 1953 in Richmond Virginia and still a proud Virginian, Mr. Francis has always enjoyed the craft of writing, from short stories, poems and an occasional song. His Walden Pond is the Rappahannock River in the northern neck of Virginia. He is never to far from his family or the river. He has gotten to see more then just the surface of the water; an avid SCUBA diver and boater for many years—knows from his experience what our rivers, bays, and oceans can offer for the future.

 

Mr. Francis has created a wonderful, colorful, and relaxing narrative for those drawn to the magic of the river. A delight and inspiration for all readers and lovers of river living.
