We welcome Lucas to the AuthorHouse Author’s Digest as she tells her tale of a promise kept and the resulting publication of her book. The story will motivate other teacher’s and help them realize that there is much more to teaching than educating others.

A Promise Kept
By Georgia Lucas

authorhouse author George Lucas

White Woman in a Red Man’s World.

I always told my students that I was going to write about them and my teaching career after I retired. But 15 years after I retired, I still had not kept my promise to my students although I had written other books. As I approached my 80th birthday, I knew I had little time left to write about my many years of teaching on Indian reservations in the Southwest.

I was spurred into action by one of my former students, a reporter for a large daily newspaper.

She reminded me of my promise to my students. “Mrs.Lucas, you must fulfill your promise to write about us, ” she said. “There have been many books written about us, but almost all of them have been written by anthropologists and missionaries. We need a book written from a schoolteacher’s perspective.” I renewed my promise to her, and a year later AuthorHouse published my memoir, White Woman in a Red Man’s World.

Then, at the urging of several younger friends, I established a Facebook account.
