Discover Weston County’s History in New Book

Local authors release new book featuring stunning collection of vintage images
Nov. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- New to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America series is Weston County by local author Shelly Ritthaler and Mike Jording. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that shaped their community.

Tucked in the northeast corner of Wyoming against the Black Hills is Weston County. The county has served as a gateway, byway, and way of life and living. In the beginning, it was home to dinosaurs and volcanoes. Nomadic Indians then wandered through leaving signs of their passing and the great Sioux Indian Nations held this land dear.

Finally, the area was seen as a place to settle since the mineral-rich land and rolling grasslands provided an economic backdrop for people to stay and build a home for their families. Today, Weston County people are as diverse as this magnificent land of rugged timber that flows into sagebrush and short-grass prairies.

Highlights of Weston County include:
•   The Gateway to the Black Hills
•   Homestead to Home
•   Railroads and Cambria
•   Weston County Towns

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online.
