My high school English teacher gave us an assignment to write a short story. When I received my story back, Mr. Avey had written a note on my papers: “Good story! I hope you will finish it someday.” He has no idea how that little comment stayed with me.

Peggy Savage Baumgardner, a retiree with a new found penchant for writing, has completed her first book “Andersons Survive the Civil War”: a wonderful journey that spans generations and carries the reader across the frontiers of a young America.
Describing her exciting new creative work Baumgardner says: “This book was started when I was in high school, which was around fifty years ago. My high school English teacher gave us an assignment to write a short story. When I received my story back, Mr. Avey had written a note on my papers: “Good story! I hope you will finish it someday.” He has no idea how that little comment stayed with me all of these years.”
Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Peggy Savage Baumgardner’s is a solidly constructed story with fabulous settings and finely crafted characters.
“Andersons Survive the Civil War” takes the reader on a fascinating journey of one Irish family's relocation from New York to New Orleans right as the Civil War was about to erupt. The Anderson family survived not only the long wagon ride south, but also the tense years of conflict that saw Union soldiers take over the city of New Orleans in hostile fashion. The book, thankfully, does not stop there. You will go up and down the Mississippi River on a riverboat with Michael Anderson, "The World's Greatest Magician," as he performs nightly in the trade his parents taught him. You will also follow the paths of Mr. and Mrs. Anderson and all of their children as they spread across the country and make a good living in the careers they choose, or have chosen for them. You will also see how love can persist over many years and thousands of miles, against all odds.
Readers who wish to experience this intricate work can purchase “Andersons Survive the Civil War” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
