If you haven't yet read a chapter of this series, you haven't discovered how much fun reading history can be! Each volume of County Chronicles embraces a varied collection of short stories--real stories from Pennsylvania's thrilling past! The Keystone of the birth of our nation, Pennsylvania has much to relate to each and every American. Each Chronicle/chapter is meticulously researched, each self-contained and short enough to read in one sitting. The author uses no chronological order so that each volume's stories are varied.
County Chronicles has garnered, to date, three prestigious awards: the Athena Award, a Special Recognition Award from the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, and a Special Recognition Award from Pennsylvania's Senate. These books have found homes in the libraries of the PA Senate Library, the (George) Marshal Foundation, the US Military Academy at West Point, the Heinz History Center, the Special Collections Department at Washington and Lee University, to name a few.
Featured on every volume is beautiful cover art by award-winning artist Helen Alt. The series of County Chronicles' covers render a beautiful spectrum of color on a special library shelf, reflection of the vivid events and bright luminaries from Pennsylvania's rich, layered history. The colorful books reflect too the bright tapestry of ethnic peoples who have settled "Penn's Woods," William Penn's Holy Experiment:--our nation's first great melting pot.
All volumes are 7 1/2' x 10 1/2" hardcover, beautifully crafted, collectible books--perfect as treasured heirlooms to be passed down through generations.
