Legendary Locals Imprint Highlights Orleans County's Best

Orleans County’s unsung heroes and notorious personalities are showcased in Arcadia Publishing’s new imprint.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Mar. 12, 2012 - The latest edition to Arcadia Publishing’s new Legendary Locals imprint is Legendary Locals of Orleans County, by Hollis Ricci-Canham, Andrew Canham. Filled with an average of 180 images and a new design, this people-centric imprint focuses on newsworthy and noteworthy individuals and groups who have built and shaped their communities.

Part of the Niagara Frontier and located in the western area of New York State, Orleans County covers a total area of 817 square miles, of which 426 square miles are water. The high proportion of water is due to the extension of Orleans County north into Lake Ontario to the Canadian border (a line of latitude running through the middle of the lake).

For this reason, the legend of the Milan, the sunken schooner, is included in these pages, along with Orleans County’s notable citizens. George Pullman of railroad car fame, Santa Claus School founder Charlie Howard, and Disney artist Hank Porter are gone now, but this region continues to produce local legends.

Members of the Orleans County Genealogical Society have long known the rich history of the amazing, hardworking, and talented people living here, and they are proud to be able to share it in Legendary Locals of Orleans County. Enjoy the stories of a former slave, record-breaking athletes, award-winning writers, military heroes, law reformers, and other surprises found only in Orleans County.

Hollis Ricci-Canham and Andrew Canham coauthored this book with contributions from many others willing to preserve the legacy of ordinary people accomplishing extraordinary things.

Each book in Arcadia Publishing’s Legendary Locals imprint delves into the history of some of the unique individuals and groups, past and present, who have made a memorable impact on their community throughout its history.

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or at www.LegendaryLocals.com or (888)-313-2665.
