Tracing Our Roots - a Guided Tour, is a detailed academic work by Janet Keith focusing on sites along Lauren Branch Road and some on Floyd Highway (221 S) in Floyd County, Virginia, with emphasis on places significant to Slushers as well as other families with whom the Slushers became intertwined over the years including the Hyltons, Weddles, Harmans, Harters and Goodykoontzes.

These papers illuminate our cultural, religious and social past with facts as well as verbal stories passed down through the generations covering the challenges they faced as they settled.
