Introducing "Cast Your Footsteps" A Remarkable Journey Through History

Cast Your Footsteps is available in paperback, ebook, and hardcover.

In the intricate tapestry of our family's history, a resilient thread weaves across generations—a thread forged by the indomitable spirit of a woman born in the waning days of the late 19th century. Today, I stand humbled and honored, tasked with transforming my grandmother's remarkable typewritten chronicle into the living, breathing manuscript that now rests in your hands. With a heart brimming with emotion, I extend to you a heartfelt invitation to embark on a journey—a poignant odyssey through the life and times of an extraordinary woman, my grandmother.

Born on March 23, 1896, Agnes Mae Geisenhoner, née Russell, came into the world at a time when horse-drawn carriages still echoed through cobblestone streets. She stands as a testament to the idea that greatness transcends gender and the limitations of any era. Agnes was a trailblazer, an indomitable force, a woman whose adventurous spirit and unquenchable curiosity defied the constraints of her time. In her words, written with the same fervor that ignited her existence, you will encounter an explorer, a daredevil unafraid of venturing into uncharted territories.

This book is more than a mere collection of words on paper; it is a vessel of emotions that flowed from her heart onto the pages. As you read, you will be transported through her life and the lives of her family—a life that bore witness to the transition from horse-drawn carriages to the roar of engines, from the serene days of trolleys to the tumultuous backdrop of two world wars. It was a life etched against the canvas of historic upheavals—the Great Depression, the distant echoes of battles, and the unwavering spirit of a nation finding its footing.

Through her narratives, cities and towns come alive, with names that resonate even as they adopt the shroud of fiction. Among the many places she traversed were Wilmington, DE, Philadelphia, Wildwood, NJ, Pennington, NJ, Schenectady, NY, and Corinth, NY.
