Recommended to Jacob by: My brother, Ryan
If you are a resident of this area, then you better read this book.

It has some awesome images with a lot of it's own history in there. It brings a lot of imaging "cascades and courage" and "heritage" to this book with an amazing history of Vernon-Rockville including old & preserved buildings and such what happened there.

There's other images and history there like the education, the people, the community and more!!

What I'm thinking is that this author who has been a historian did a nice job
