Overview

Will the Amish survive the 21st Century? Are human sacrifices performed at the Serpent Mound? What is Thomas Jefferson's legacy in the state of Ohio? What was the Air Force looking for in the Ohio night skies? Where did the Shawnee call the place of the "devil winds"? Where does Sasquatch reside? What really matters most?

Did you think Ohio was boring and colorless?

All these questions are explored if not answered in Dave Horton's road trip through Ohio in the fall of 2009 that is now the book "Small Towns, Country Roads, Autumn Leaves and Other Points of Historical Interest."

Follow Dave as he guides you through some of the more obscure and lesser known sites and stories of his home state which covers the history of Ohio from the Devonian Age (400,000 million years ago) to the present (no kidding).

Says Gina Haber, noted acupuncturist, nutritionist, and native Cincinnatian, "I've never been a history reader but Dave's book is insightful, instructive and at times LOL funny."

Although this book is about Ohio, it has a reach far beyond and will be of interest to anyone who has fond thoughts of a home left behind. The book also has many beautiful color photographs of the fall foliage. You haven't read anything like this, and you'll never look at Ohio in the same way again.
