Meet the Author

Byron Crawford�s television and newspaper stories and photographs about Kentucky�s fascinating people and places have appeared in print and broadcasts from coast to coast and occasionally in Europe and Asia. But his thrice-weekly stories were most at home over the past 29 years in the Courier-Journal, from which Byron retired as the newspaper�s �Kentucky Columnist� in December 2008. Byron and his wife, Jackie, live in Shelbyville and are the parents of four children and six grandchildren.
