I always enjoy Bud Phillips' articles in the Sunday edition of the Bristol Herald Courier. This book was no different. It is a collection of all the articles he has published and they are divided by category. If you are ever in Bristol, make sure to check out all the landmarks Phillips' mentions. We are lucky to have such a great local historian that aims to preserve out history.
