A great book for historians and the curious!
I live in the area mentioned in the book. It was fascinating looking through the pictures with my husband's grandmother, Mrs. E.B. Ellis, who grew up in this area and knew many of the people and places in the photos. I feel that it needed just a little more in-depth dialog, though. I'm looking forward to Steve's next book!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Well Received by the Community
I was fortunate to be around the author when he was labouring on this book into the nights. It was fascinating to hear him retell the stories behind the hundreds of photos lent to him by the people in the community, and then to see him uncover the links and untold truths revealed in his extensive research. - His complete research is evident by the wide spread acceptance in the community of this book. It was distributed in many corner markets, libraries, and local historical societies. Now I have people asking me in church when they can get a copy of the second printing. - Like others, I wish there had been more telling of the stories. We await Steve's next book.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
