The Voice: So, I"m just going to sit in the chair and get started:
Now Ey, what is this grand news I have been hearing? It's really gotten you excited.
Ey: Yes, who wouldn't be excited to read good reports on projects they have worked on. I feel really happy about these reviews. Beads on a String is a book I believe will open the eyes of a lot of people. This is the only book about America's history that includes all races without segregation.
Ey,Just read these reviews off Amazon....
An amazing work - very labor intensive - and worthy of a PhD (in my humble opinion, but what do I know). Your index is just as intense as the text, for God's sake!
From twitter: Thank you for giving me the opportunity to read it...just wished there were more pictures :~)@ponderdeeply:@jumpouttheboat Finished your book, "Beads On a String!" Perfect for home-schooling; very complete, heartwarming and winning material :~)
5.0 out of 5 stars Must read for History buffs!,

This review is from: Beads On a String-America's Racially Intertwined Biographical History (Kindle Edition)Beads on a String is an approachable, conversational, and interactive history of diversity in America. Instead of a melting pot, Ey Wade envisions the country as a piece of jewelry where the contributions of all of the people who have immigrated here from all over the world add to the beauty of our society. It honors all of the peoples that contributed to this country in a nicely balanced way. Designed as a resource for students it suits the classroom or homeschool classroom but also is an enjoyable read for armchair historians and fans of the History Channel. It's a must read for history lovers.

This review is from: Beads On a String-America's Racially Intertwined Biographical History (Kindle Edition)I just finished Beads on A String and in all sincerity I have to say it is a work of subtle genius. Several years back I read one of the most unusual history books ever written, "The Peoples' History of the United States." Anyone who has read that revelation of history as events that really happened, as opposed to events as reported by those who were left holding the most power, will see a similar sort of understanding in this amazing work by Ey Wade. An alternative title for her work could well be, "A History of the People of the United States. I can give this work no higher compliment.
I was consistently fascinated by unexpected connections, accomplishments and contributions being added to the ongoing tapestry of our country by so many people from so many ethnic and cultural backgrounds, that I simply couldn't put the book down. If I could ask for anything more, it would literally be just that...more.
This is the story of the heroes of our collective past. What is incredibly moving is that so many of these heroes have gone unsung for so long.
I can gladly recommend this book to anyone interested in the historical journey of the land we live in. Beyond that, I can just as easily recommend it to anyone who just likes a great read.
Awesome, right. There are more reviews found here and each one has given me great joy.
