Rev. Amber Inscore Essick, co-pastor of Port Royal Baptist Church and a member of BSK’s adjunct faculty, recently wrote a book review for her local newspaper, Henry County Local. Rev. Inscore Essick wrote a review of “‘The Home Place: Memoirs of a Colored Man’s Love Affair with Nature.” Rev Inscore Essick writes,
“Lanham’s accounts of raising cattle and hunting on his family farm brought to mind many of the stories I’ve heard from farmer friends around here. I imagine particular old friends laughing, fretting, and working in the same ways that he grew up doing. If Ronnie Young, a beloved local teacher, cattleman, hunter, and scientist, could still be alive to read this memoir, he would have found a kindred soul in Lanham.”
