It was an honor to co-author this book with Norma Gurba, Dayle DeBry, and Karl Peterson. The writing skills of both Norma and Dayle are already proven in their previous books.  I am in awe of the teamwork that went into the research and collection of information for this project.  Many of you are familiar with Karl’s photo and historical posts on FB.  He not only recreated the NOW scenes for the book, but selected and edited most of the THEN photos…………..


I am truly excited about this book. Profits from books purchased from the AV Rural Museum will go to the preservation of AV history, as well as the development and growth of the AV Rural Museum, as will all royalties. BUT profits from books purchased elsewhere will benefit that vendor. So PLEASE consider ordering from the AV Rural Museum.  –  Bill Rawlings
