Robert Williams' autobiography could be the template for your own
In From Away: Maine Origins of a Russian Historian, Williams dives into his genealogy and reveals that many of his ancestors lived in or summered in Maine. He ties his and his wife’s blood to the land pointing to his family going to its summer camp on Kezar Lake in Lovell, Maine, generations on. Music is a recurring theme in Williams' life and he has sang with barbershop quartets in most of the communities where he landed. But more than anything else, Williams has always been a writer. His jobs required it and he enjoyed adding to the body of Russian history.
Since his youth, the camp on Kezar Lake has gone through many changes. Attempts from his father at getting electricity installed led to proper equipment being brought in until the lake house was properly wired. Williams learned cutthroat versions of bridge, hearts, and canasta from his grandmother between going hiking, boating, and fishing. Neighbors through the years made their summers different all the time. Some allowed Williams and his family to walk on their docks, sharing the lake. One neighbor in particular decided to shoot at people trying to walk on her dock, scaring off local fishermen.
