    A well put together patriotic book for locals

    Some interesting tales here. The highlights for me were The Artist's Lesson, Rumspringa and Reminiscence and Regret in Portage. I felt that these stories were well constructed, held the readers attention and had subject matter was enjoyable. However, the most impressive tale is the one written by Geoffrey Beardsall. It begins and ends well. The middle flows well, it's entertaining and written about a topic which is a huge favourite with locals. It just goes to show that you don't need a degree to put together a short entertaining anecdote!
    A small slice of history which will be enjoyed by many local people.
    Thank you to Rebecca for giving me the chance to find out more about a different part of the USA.
