Every time I see Robert Lawson's artwork I am struck by how excellent his
drawing skills were. In They Were Strong And Good, which is also written by
Lawson, he chronicles and illustrates the history of his parents and their parents. It is written in the narrative of himself as a young boy.
In the foreword Lawson writes about his forebears "None of them were great or famous, but they were strong and good."
