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.
