"This history of Rockingham County is not just a listing of places, names, and dates, but it is the story of our struggling forefathers and the settling of a valley. The story is about thousands of living souls, ordinary men and women who came here full of hope, groping for a new home and a firm foundation. Here the home seekers found a land of promise - a place where they could work, prosper, raise families and worship as they chose. Here they toiled through peace and struggled through war; they failed - they succeeded! They learned to live and work together- they built a priceless heritage for us to cherish and revere." - preface excerpt Each volume signed by the author.
