Colonel Robert Richard Boyd, USA (ret.) “was born in Mecklenburg County, Virginia in 1920. He has a degree in Agricultural Economics from V.P.I. and a degree in Law from William and Mary College. He has been a member of the Bar of the U.S. Supreme Court and has worked for the federal government. Now retired, Boyd lives in northern Virginia with his wife, Anna.” Colonel Robert Richard Boyd is the author of A Ramble Through Life.


According to the book description of A Ramble Through Life, “Both historical and extremely entertaining, "A Ramble Through Life" tells the tale of not only the author, but of his family and their place in history. Boyd offers the reader a look into the events that shaped his life, such as stealing a watermelon from a neighboring farm, learning about the facts of life from the sharecroppers on his family’s land, his patriotism in Europe during the Battle of the Bulge, and courtship of the woman who would ultimately become his beloved wife. Few details are spared, as Boyd tells the good, the bad and everything in between. Interspersed with pictures and entries from a diary kept by his grandfather during the Civil War, Boyd’s "A Ramble through Life" is more than a memoir; it is a living history.”
