Because there was always something he had to tell his little girl "Myles" accumulated notes and found himself answering her questions in great depth. In the seventh chapter "The move down south" you will laugh and you will cry. Most of all you will think of how the uncanny truth lends itself to fantasy. That is what makes the journey with Myles a trip to remember. The author understands that not only is he satisfying the curiosity of a child but that he is also leaving a legacy by giving the family name a place in history.
