New Book Celebrates Cass County History

Cass County, a new pictorial history book exploring the county's history through vintage photographs and captions, will be published August 29.

 
PRLog - Aug. 8, 2011 - MT. PLEASANT, S.C. -- Cass County, a new pictorial history book exploring the county's history through vintage photographs and captions, will be published August 29.

The proud and handsome Ioway chief Mahaska, the visionary entrepreneur Franklin H. Whitney, and the wartime friend of Pres. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Gov. Clyde Herring, are just three of the scores of extraordinary individuals who played a role in Cass County history. Not every effort met with success, as many early settlements now exist only in the ghostly images of fading memory; yet it is out of their vision and sacrifice that a thriving county of 16 proud townships emerged.

"We feel the most rewarding part in writing this book can be found in the interaction with the many people we interviewed and who so willingly brought us photographs and stories," wrote authors Lila Hoogeveen and Shiona Putnam, who also wrote the book Atlantic last year.

Cass County will be available August 29, 2011 at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers, and through Arcadia Publishing at (888) 313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
