Recent release ‘The Building of America’ from Covenant Books author Peggy Waites Todd ‘Daddy’s Girl’ is a personal memoir dedicated to her father’s life as a dragline operator and the impact she still sees across America today.

Peggy Waites Todd, a Louisiana native who grew up in a loving family, has completed her new book “The Building of America”: the untold story of her father’s career on the dragline.

Todd shares, “I can honestly say that I never brought any pain or embarrassment to either my daddy or mother. When they needed me, I was there without complaint. I am immensely proud of the woman I became because of the way they raised me. Being a strong and determined person, I accomplished anything that I set out to do. My daddy trusted me with everything he had in the world. From the time I graduated business college at the age of 18, he always wanted me to take care of his books. I did this until the day he passed from this world.

“Daddy trusted me to drive our car when we were traveling from California to Grandma’s house in Louisana every Christmas. Daddy could go to sleep while I was driving and not worry that I would run the car off in the ditch or have a wreck. I guess that’s what led me to become a cross-country truck driver for 13 years.”
