    Another Great Volume from Bob L. Cox

    Anyone interested in the history of East Tennessee or the Johnson City -Washington County area will love this book. The chapter on Clarence Greene, who recorded "Johnson City Blues" at the Columbia Records' 1928 recording sessions in Johnson City is a gem. Bob tracked down Clarence's son in North Carolina and those stories and several photos are published for the first time. The story of the "Lady of the Fountain" - Johnson City's landmark downtown statue, its eventual recovery from a metal recycling operation and the journey it took prior to being returned to the city is amazing. The 1886 Governor's election in which two brothers ran against each other; drawing the largest crowds in Tennessee history - entertaining crowds with fiddle tunes and criss-crossing the state traveling together arguing politics is also well written. Each chapter brings new light to various eras of local history and is a 5-star quality addition to any collection. The book is well worth the cover price.
