Coming in Spring 2020: So happy to report that Tim & I are working hard on another joint book project. This time, we’re updating an existing title called Guide to the Natchez Trace Parkway for Menasha Ridge Press.

So much has changed since the 2nd edition was published in 2011, and we’re having a blast discovering all the Trace has to offer. We’ve traveled all 444 miles—from Nashville, Tennessee, to Natchez, Mississippi—and have so much to share from our adventures. Stay tuned for more photos and tidbits as we get closer to our release date!

September 14, 2015: Official release date for our book, Weaverville (Images of America),  from Arcadia Publishing.

Nearly 200 photographs trace the history of what was once called Dry Ridge by the Cherokee. It features a ton of founding families and citizens and honors the growth of area businesses, churches, and schools. About half of the photographs came from the holdings of the Dry Ridge Historical Museum, but many are previously unseen images from the personal collections of fourth-generation residents.

We recommend you purchase a copy from your local independent bookstore, but they are also available via online retailers such as Amazon, Barnes & NobleTarget, and Powells.
