Robert Ross Williams, a retired army officer with a B.A. in Anthropology from the University of Memphis and a M.A. in Russian studies from Florida State University, has completed his new book “Woodlawn Giants”: a moving story inspired by true events in the author’s life about growing up in West Memphis.

As Williams writes, “Daddy and Mr. Rick planted some pines. They are still there to this day, standing tall, looking good and high in the sky. … These would grow into what I now call the Woodlawn Giants. Each tree to me symbolizes the giants and grown men that we the boys who grew up on Woodlawn became.”

Life lessons abound in each exciting adventure Williams and his friends went on, including playing Florida Ball, snipe hunting, and attempting to jump the Ten-Mile Bayou.
