Boone County, Images of America
Boone County, Indiana was founded against the odds with lots of skepticism from all directions. In the earliest years it was deemed a barely habitable swamp filled with rattlesnakes and mosquitoes. But those who chose to take a chance on Boone, were rewarded with some of the Midwest's finest farmland, all within a stone's throw from the Crossroads of America and state capital at Indianapolis. Over 200 vintage images are detailed with quick-to-read captions and cover Boone from its earliest days. **All books ordered directly from the author are signed include shipping and a personalized inscription upon request**
The State of Boone
This enjoyable book in quick-read format covers the "The Tales We've Been Told, The Ones We Tell & The Stories We Should Never Forget." From the beginning, Boone County Indiana has been home to a rollicking cast of "characters." Written by a Boone County native with roots deep enough in the county founding that she still feels its pull today. The State of Boone is the storybook companion to the image-laden "Boone County, Images of America." Inside read about Graveyards Mad Stones, Cures, History, Tall Tales, Lynching, Crimes, Gorillas, High Hopes, and Low Morals -- and some stuff that makes us laugh until we Cry. **All books ordered directly from the author are signed include shipping and a personalized inscription upon request**
