The program is geared towards current and future living history volunteers, but is open to the public. Sessions will include coverage of food, clothing, social customs and the general life and times of women on the frontier.

Cost for all sessions is $25 per person and includes meals. Registration is available online at fortconcho.com or by contacting Sharon Baird at fortgriffinwife@aol.com or at 325-338-2149.

Robb will speak about her recent books including “The Captive Boy,” a story about a white child who was captured by Comanche Indians and recovered by the United States Cavalry.
