Have to say I'd be a bit prejudiced on reviewing this book, since I wrote it but if you are from the Crawfordsville, Indiana area, you'll want to grab it up. One lady told me being a history buff, she knew she'd read it quickly but she read into the night to finish it in one sweep :) It also got the 5 * (10% do) rating from Arcadia, the publisher.

This book is an excellent overview of the history of the town of Crawfordsville. There are some really interesting stories and beautiful photographs. It's also very entertaining, which is unusual in a non-fiction book. Definitely worth a read if you have an interest in Crawfordsville or Montgomery County.
