Meet the Author

John P. King, the editor of this work, has obviously gotten some of the historical sands of Highlands into his shoes, for in his writings he has returned to Highlands time after time. This, his fifth published book on Highlands history, has proved to him to be his most enjoyable, for it gives voice to the very people who made the town the delightful place it once was and still is today. At least two other works on Highlands remain in his computer--one a historical novel, the other a history of the town's first hundred years, thus proving the truth of Ann McNeill's little poem.
