  • I was excited to read this book, because it was the first I learned about my ancestor's. I was told by my father we're descendants of Hector Dixson. Thanks dad for sharing, but now I have more questions than answers, lol . I'm not sure about getting any answers, but I did enjoy reading the book.


  • Hector Dixon was my great great grandfather. In reading this book, I smiled most of the time, although there were some times where I was worried. It really touched my heart to see that Hector made such a dynamic impact on others during a time in which for some may have been nothing but sadness and pain. And to know that he did so much in starting the Homestead just makes me proud. We still have a little bit of research to do.everything is coming together. We know have more to pass on to our own [...]


  • I'm not sure if this a poorly written work of historical fiction or a poorly researched non-fiction book. The first 100+ pages are back stories of the main couple, who supposedly had separate journeys out of slavery at the tail end of the Civil War. A cursory effort on my part (using ancestry) confirmed that neither Hector or his wife Julia left their home counties before 1870. Hector supposedly lived on a farm owned by a man named Dixon, yet only 4 Dixon families exist in the county in question [...]


  • I read this book as part of the Nebraska 150 book challenge. Not a book I would normally pick up, but I enjoyed this fictionalized account of a forgotten part of Nebraska history. I would love to learn more about these black homesteaders.



  • Another book I came across through the Nebraska 150 Challenge and another book that was absolutely worth reading! I had no idea there were black homesteaders in Nebraska which made this a very interesting read. The author did a great job telling about the main characters, starting with their story when they were still slaves and gradually letting their lives interweave on their way to their future as homesteaders.
