Suzi Parron, in cooperation with Donna Sue Groves, documented the massive public art project known as the barn quilt trail in her 2012 book Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement. The first of these projects began in 2001, when Groves and community members created a series of twenty painted quilt squares in Adams County, Ohio. Since then, barn quilts have spread throughout forty-eight states and several Canadian provinces. In Following the Barn Quilt Trail, Parron brings readers along as she, her new love, Glen, their dog Gracie, and their converted bus Ruby, leave the stationary life behind. Suzi and Glen follow the barn quilt trail through thirty states across thirteen thousand miles as Suzi collects the stories behind the brightly painted squares. With plentiful color photographs, this endearing hybrid of memoir and travelogue is for quilt lovers, Americana and folk art enthusiasts, or anyone up for a good story.

Richard sits, surrounded by his loving grandchildren, in the midst of yet another difficult Wisconsin winter. Fighting the cold, cuddling close to a blazing fire, they say, Tell us a story, Grandpa! Tell us a story! Grandpa Richard is happy to oblige, and so begins a nostalgic journey back to the 1920s, when Richards family struggled to survive in rural parts of the far northern United States. A mix of fact and fiction, Stoneboat Journey is one mans look into his family history and how their history related to and affected the history of our country. Richards family was comprised of German immigrants, living and fighting to thrive through blizzard, fire, and tragic loss. Richard, once a shy a withdrawn young man, finds himself thrown into the mix, as well, accepting a leadership role at a very early age. In his unexpected leadership role, Richard finds happiness, purpose, and wisdom that last into his later years. Stoneboat Journey is more than a family memoir. It is the memoir of a developing America. Many of our current creature comforts are based on the difficult lives of these early families, struggling to make ends meet. The story of Richards family is the story of America.
