Costco to Host Book Signing for Local Des Moines Author

Craig McCue will be available to sign copies of Des Moines: 1845-1920

PRLog - May 16, 2014 - DES MOINES, Iowa -- Today Des Moines is a proud city, beloved by its residents and consistently ranked as one of the best places to live and work. Des Moines: 1845-1920 explores how it got that way. In this remarkable photographic history, local author Craig McCue traces Des Moines’ story back to its beginning, following its development from a pioneer town to the bustling city that emerged at the beginning of the twentieth century.

Although Des Moines: 1845-1920 features the city’s buildings and industry, people bring the city’s history to life. McCue explains, “The true legacy of our pioneers is not in the buildings they built, but in the character and values they fostered, and the enterprises and associations they left to their community”.
