The Tollivers of Bear Wallow Mountain: The Story of a Grandma’s Love by Helen Salyer Perkins
The purpose of this writing is to pass on my own family memories as well as memories gathered from other relatives, and to impart to readers the importance of family.
Our family was a very important part of my life as a child and continued over the years. In my mind’s eye, I can visualize our Grandma Tolliver as well as each of my aunts and uncles and most of the cousins.
This writing focuses on my grandparents and their fifteen children.
Review by Shelly Beannv. Wonderful book! Loved reading this well written book on the Tolliver Family of Bear Wallowa Mountain! Takes you back long ago to witness the love of a wonderful family! Especially, enjoy the recipes in this book, too! Look forward to more publications from this talented author!
Review by Randall Holberg. Labor of Love. I enjoyed reading your beautiful writing. I laughed…I cried…I remembered! As I read, I couldn’t stop myself from writing some of my thoughts and memories in the margins. What a treasure you compiled; a true gift to the family. – Kim

Review by Roberta M. Banta. I loved getting to read about my dad’s side of the family.
Review by Amazon Customer. A delightful book! So very interesting and refreshing. Just a delightful book! So very interesting and refreshing to read about family lives, their values and family ties from a simpler time. The old family recipes are an added bonus.
Review by Online Shopper. Loved it! My Mother LOVED this book. Re-read it a number of times!
Review by Patty Simpson. A very good documentary of early life in the Tolliver family.

About The Author: Author Helen Salyer Perkins grew up in a very large extended family where most of the women were excellent cooks, Helen was exposed to many excellent dishes and recipes. As a result, when she married and became mother to three growing and always hungry boys, Helen learned to make delicious – at least most of the time – meals for them.
Over the years, she added many and varied recipes and recipe books to her collection. For two years in the early 2000’s, Helen was host of Kitchen Korner, a cooking program on WNVI, a local radio station in North Vernon, Indiana. She would review and pass on various recipes to her listeners five days a week. Many days, a guest was in the studio who shared their favorite recipe.
A couple of the most memorable guests were former Indiana Governor Edgar Whitcomb and now Vice President of the United States Mike Pence. Both were just delightful and very interesting guests.
Helen was born and grew up in Ohio but moved to Indiana nearly 40 years ago. The boys are grown now and have families of their own, but they contact her frequently to get the recipes for their favorite dishes. The most requested being “Bread Dressing / Stuffing”. She has spent the past year sorting and organizing her stash of recipes in a concerted effort to pass them on for others to enjoy!
