Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Founded in 1852, Bristol, Tennessee, celebrated its sesquicentennial just a few years ago. This addition to Arcadia's local favorite Postcard History series extends that celebration to include pictorial images of a hamlet known far and wide as "A Good Place to Live." Chapter headings include "Friends, Neighbors, and Families," "Buildings and Homes," "Street Scenes," "Children," "Education," "Religion," "Work," and "The Birth of Country Music." A portable nostalgia feast.
