In From These Roots, Sandra E. McBride presents a collection of articles she has had published in The Express weekly newspaper here in her hometown area of Mechanicville/Stillwater/Schaghticoke and Halfmoon in Upstate New York. Likening life within our communities to the growth of a tree, she begins with the fascinating history which shows “the roots” of this area. She moves on to “the strong trunk” which represents the people who have had an amazing impact on her hometowns, a foundation of sorts which raises us up. In “branches reach out” she tells of those incidents and memorable occasions which show our spreading out to appreciate all that we experience. In “the leaves that grow”, she depicts the members of our communities who have provided plenteous deeds with their efforts making this a great place to live. In the “blossoms that go forth on the breeze”, she has shown how in moving on from our own hometowns, we have experienced the wider world, and therein gained a new appreciation of all we have. In her epilogue, she speaks of special cherished memories of places and times she will forever hold dear in her heart.
