In the above book reference is made to a bird of prey called "Timmermans hawk" Fellow birders both here and in Canada are puzzled as we are unable to locate this in any book on Birds of Prey of North America.
This is more than likley a local name
given to a bird of that region. If any one out there can solve this please advise. Many Thanks

Waller's first wife is named Georgia. She moved to Texas with him. They had one daughter named Rachael. Some of his best writing is in a book of essays entitled "Old Songs in a New Cafe", one of which is "Excavating Rachael's Room".

Vivian, RJW is originally from Iowa. He was a business professor at UNI in Cedar Falls. As you know, he's one of the greatest writers of our time.

I never thought I would experience a moment as described in this book and feel the sense of loss that forbidden love can bring. But better to be loved than never loved at all.
You may lose a person but your memories will always be there.

Is the "novel' Bridges of Madison County based on a real life incident? It clearly says novel on the cover but the preface alludes to a possibly true story that was somehow embellished in order to create a "novel" What are the facts here? In any event the book and its sequel are easy and excellent reading. Thanks!!

To clarify an argument could you please advise me if this book was based on a true story or not?

I am an Iowa writer with a manuscript ready to go about a midwest love affair. I would love to be in touch with Robert for encouragement toward a happy ending (being published). Any chance of contact with either Robert or an assistant or agent of his?
Thank you for even considering this.
