Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Students would love this information to be presented in the classroom. Trivia buffs should love the variety of factoids to be gleaned. Kentuckians and those whose family pedigree includes ancestors from the state will take pride in the work. The history of Kentucky is interesting and intriguing. The Klotters have ensured their book is the same." — Linda Lee, Armchair Interviews

Library Journal
Produced by two of Kentucky's most active and respected historians, this is the first comprehensive history of the Commonwealth since Thomas C. Clark chronicled Kentucky history some 60 years ago. The book's 25 chapters relate the story in chronological fashion, from pioneer days to the current challenges. Maps, figures, and tables help readers to visualize the personalities and events. This work is essential for every public and academic library in the state, and academic and some public libraries elsewhere will probably want to add it to their collections.Richard C. Brown, Boyle Cty. P.L., Danville, Ky.
