Nonfiction book about 300 years of American history, and of course, the Busters!
Imagine Finding Your Roots, Roots Less Traveled and Who Do You Think You Are presented in a book format. The Buster Clan: An American Saga does exactly that. Within these hefty histories are smaller sagas where lives were personally affected by how history played out. Instead of focusing on one person in a biography, many people are featured with mini-biographies; like an anthology of biographies.
"This is more than just one clan’s history, though. The author presents us with a true social and cultural examination of the times when the various Buster family members lived. I thoroughly enjoyed this extremely readable book and can highly recommend it."

"Kollenborn doesn’t flinch at confronting the foibles and failings of her antecedents, and this only serves to make her work even more powerful. This is an engaging, large-scale biography with historical tidbits scattered throughout. It should hold a broad appeal for both history and genealogy lovers. RECOMMENDED." The US Review
"What results is a rich tapestry of American attitudes and ideals, both in tribute to the American experience and with a view to more positive change and healing in the country’s future. This gives the sometimes-dry pages of history a really refreshing lift and new energy, making it easier to engage with times gone by and relive them through a modern lens. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend The Buster Clan: An American Saga to fans of vividly detailed American history, well-researched works, and human interest stories with social observations at their core."
