Melvin Edwards, The Strength of a Thousand Sons

Melvin Edwards, The Strength of a Thousand Sons

In this episode, Melvin E. Edwards returns to discuss his powerful, new book, The Strength of a Thousand Sons. In it he recounts more stories from his Texas family and illustrates the power of a father's love and the effect it can have on generations. We also discussed many other topics, including baseball, fishing, the legislative process in Texas and much more. Be sure to get a copy of Melvin E. Edwards' The Strength of a Thousand Sons and The Eyes of Texans.

The song at the end, Old Dogs is by Texas History Lessons spotlight artist Mando Salas and his band Rosmand.

The Texas History Lessons Theme song, Walking Through History, was written and recorded by Derrick McClendon. Listen to his new album, Interstate Daydreamer! Available everywhere you find good music. Thank you Derrick! Twitter: @dmclendonmusic
