Local Author Pens New History Book on Area's Bests

Lansing's unsung heroes and notorious personalities are showcased in Arcadia Publishing's new imprint.

PRLog - Oct. 25, 2012 - MT. PLEASANT, S.C. -- The latest edition to Arcadia Publishing’s new Legendary Locals imprint is Legendary Locals of Lansing, by local author Carrie Steinweg. 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.

Lansing was settled in the 1840s by German and Dutch immigrants. Farming, then the railroad, played major roles in the growth of the village. The brickyards left a lasting impact on the community, as did Henry Ford’s airport hangar, which still stands today.

The schools produced figures who have become well known outside Lansing, such as Major League Baseball outfielder Curtis Granderson, who has won a Silver Slugger award and joined baseball’s elite 20-20-20-20 club. The community has been blessed with caring and dedicated educators like Hal Gronewald and Durward Shuetz, whose reach extended beyond the classroom.

Lansing has also raised war heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country—men like August Olsen and Philip Martini. Many other heroes have served and protected at home, including Kenneth Novak Jr., Lansing’s only police officer to die in the line of duty.

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


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.
