Synopsis
Fips, Bots, Doggeries, and More: Explorations of Henry Rogers' 1838 Journal of Travel from Southwestern Ohio to New York City (2012) is based on a journal written by Lawson’s great-great-great grandfather, who kept an account of his family’s 55-day journey on a horse-drawn wagon. His observations about the social and political environment of the times, emerging technology, and his family’s health and comfort while on the road were all commented upon in the journal. After making most of the same trip herself by automobile--along with her young daughter--during the summers of 2003 and 2004, and keeping her own journal, Tracy was inspired to compare and share information about both trips--taken over a century and a half apart. Fips, Bots, Doggeries, and More won the Ohio Professional Writers Association’s Best Non-fiction History award in 2012, and was featured in the Ohioana Book Festival in 2013.
