I am a direct descendant of Joseph Willis and have been told stories about our family's Redbone past by my grandfather from my childhood until his passing. "My Bones Are Red" is an excellent ethnography about the Redbones who came west to Louisiana in the end of the 18th and beginning of the 19th centuries. The book shows the fierce independent spirit of the Redbone people as they settle in a hostile, violent, lawless area in a "backwater" of the Spanish, French, and later US colony. They forged a life in that hostile area known at the time as "Stinking Hell" because of the road agents, slavers, brigands, and pirates such as the infamous Jean Lafitte. If you are of Redbone stock, this book should be in your library. If you have an interest in Redbone history you should definitely read this book.

Great research! Patricia Waak did great genealogical research into the red bone community. Like Ms Waak, it was kind of a shock to discover I had tri racial heritage. (We share a common ancestry, the Sweat family). Thanks for helping document the LA Melungeons.

The book was informative and well written with many family tree outlines and photos. It contained actual facts and was quite helpful.

Ordered this for a friend to complete her genealogy. Very disappointing. Started off well, but the overall information was disappointing. Author named chapters and there was nothing about that in the chapter. She did not to a very good genealogical presentation. Needed more information and sources, especially about the Indian connection. Where did that come from? You cannot just write it an expect it to be true without documentation or sources.

All of the facts in the book are unsubstantiated and have no proof. Family was not consulted for the production of the book. Permission was not given for family member's pictures entered in the book. Patricia A. Waak offended several family members with erroneous information in the book.
