Tuesday Tidbits - July 28, 2015 - Levi Weston
July 28, 2015
I was recently asked to name my “favorite character” in my “The Homeplace Saga” stories. That, of course, is like asking you to name a favorite child. Instead, I named three from the ‘modern’ stories and three from the ‘founding’ stories.

The first among the three for the ‘historical’ stories was Levi Weston. He is really an ‘outsider’ in a number of ways, which perhaps makes him especially interesting. But, he had a fascinating relationship with ‘founder’ Jake Patton. Levi’s story shares many of the experiences of Oak Springs area residents in the Jefferson City area while they were ‘in exile’ during the Civil War. Levi makes major contributions to re-bullding Oak Springs. Also, he ties in nicely with “The Kings of Oak Springs” stories.
Here are some sample episodes from his story (each included in the eBook):
1. The opening chapter of Levi’s story…
2. Levi’s first contact with Oak Springs area folks…
3. Levi moved to Oak Springs, the first time, in 1857…
4. Levi during the Civil War…
5. Levi returned to Oak Springs after the war, in 1869…
