PRLog - Sep. 8, 2011 - McCurtain County, a new book illustrating the history of the county through vintage photographs and captions, will be published September 12.

A portion of the book's proceeds will be McCurtain County Historical Society.

The book covers the settlement of the Chocktaw Indians to McCurtain County in the 1830s, the building of the county courthouse in Idabel in 1907, the growth of the sawmill industry, agriculture, and much more.

"McCurtain County has a very unique and diverse history that has produced some of the key players in Oklahoma and Oklahoma Choctaw history," says author Kenneth Sivard, who wrote the book with his wife, Kayla. Many of the photographs in McCurtain County came from the Sivards' private collection and have never before been published.

McCurtain County will be available September 12, 2011 at area bookstores, independent retailers, online retailers, and through Arcadia Publishing at (888) 313-2665 or www.arcadiapublishing.com.
