The two volumes written by Columbia Mankin recount her life in the Missouri Ozarks and include some family history. These are entitled "Dear Descendents." Mrs. Hitchcock's first volume, "Dear Grandchildren," deals with her early years in Missouri and forty years in Athens, Georgia. "Joyce and the Little People," the second of Mrs. Hitchcock's books, is filled with the anecdotes of her children growing up in the "Five-Points Area" of Athens. This is primarily written for children and is illustrated by Pearl Cox, a resident of Athens.
