Has your life ever been changed by a chance meeting with someone? Mine has. Over three decades ago, quite by accident, met author Jerry Ellis while he was working on his first book. He uttered a few sentences to me that changed the way I saw the world and my place in it. We recently reconnected to talk about that day and what has transpired since!

Walking the Trail by Jerry Ellis was nominated by Random House for a Pulitzer Prize and has been published in three languages. He was the first person in the modern world to walk the 900 mile route of the Cherokee Trail of Tears. It is required reading in some schools in the USA and in Germany and is often used in book clubs.
Jerry is a friend here in Fort Payne and a remarkable man with so many accomplishments, and still going strong !
He and his sister, Sandra Lafferty, have made us proud!
