ST. CHARLES, Mo. - Oct. 30, 2017 - PRLog -- Barnes & Noble to Host Book Signing for St. Charles, Missouri: A Brief History

Local author James W. Erwin will be available to sign copies of book


Louis Blanchette came to Les Petites CĂ´tes (the Little Hills) in 1769. The little village, later dubbed San Carlos del Misury by the Spanish and St. Charles by the Americans, played a major role in the early history of Missouri. It launched Lewis and Clark's expedition, as well as countless other westbound settlers. It served as the first capital of the new state. Important politicians, judges, soldiers, businesspersons, educators and even a saint all called St. Charles home. Despite its rapid growth from a sleepy French village into a dynamic city amid one of the fastest-growing regions in the country, St. Charles never forgot its history. Author James Erwin tells the story of its fascinating heritage.
