Today on Too Opinionated:
YOUR HEROES, MY
By Julie Rogers Pomilia, the Granddaughter of theIconic & Legendary Western Movie & TV Stars Roy Rogers and Dale Evans.
The first book ever by a Roy
Rogers and Dale Evans family member to chronicle the lives of
the "Royal Western Couple," one of the most famous couples in
western film and television history from the distinctive
perspective of their grandchild, Julie Rogers Pomilia.
We knew them as our heroes, but she knew them as simply, Grandma and Grandpa. Having lived through the 50’s and 60’s at the height of their popularity, and on into these current times when few people under the age of 50 remember them more as historic figures that had a great impact on American culture.
They were the Brad and Angelina of the 50’s, before it was in vogue. Being the youngest daughter of Dale Evans’ only biological son, Julie shares from personal experience, the love and acceptance her grandparents exuded as they adopted five children from different walks of life and cultures. Combining “yours, mine, and ours, step, adopted and foster” making nine total.
The author shares unique insights about what it was like living with her famous grandparents. Today, Roy and Dale are still relatable, and their granddaughter’s heartwarming experiences transcend time and generational differences.
