If the Creek Don't Rise
If the Creek Don't Rise, the fast-moving memoir by Rita Williams, is subtitled "My Life Out West with the Last Black Widow of the Civil War." That is what caught my eye as I roamed the biography shelves of the public library. It did not disappoint. Williams' 2006 story has family photos at the beginning of each momentous chapter and I still can not believe what an adventurous life she has led!
