Editorial Reviews

Review

"Out there on black asphalt ribbons, deep in the heart of nowhere, I watch the images of towns and people grow smaller in my rearview mirror and finally fade to nothing. I feel at one with the speeding tires and the motion of the Jeep.... The movement seems strange yet vaguely familiar, as though it possesses a soul I once met but can't quite remember.... Those slowly disappearing images...and the blurry objects on the side of the highway were not solely optical events. They were fragments of time rushing past me, quickly and almost imperceptibly. I do not know where they went."

More About the Author

A native of Hamilton, Ohio, Randy McNutt began his career as an independent record producer. Later he worked as an award-winning newspaper and magazine writer. He has written (and contributed to) twenty books on music, politics, writing, and history. They include the travel narrative "Guitar Towns: A Journey to the Crossroads of Rock 'n' Roll," for which he traveled to Bakersfield, Norfolk, Memphis, New Orleans and other old music capitals to search for the ghosts of the American record business. Since the 1990s, McNutt has written several books about his home state, all of which remain in print. His most recent is "Ohio Civil War Tales," a collection of mostly little-known stories of the war written with his wife, Cheryl Bauer. Are you interested in older independent record companies, music business characters, and vintage recordings? Read Randy's blog at www.homeofthehits.blogspot.com.

Format: Paperback
You can't buy a more entertaining history book. There are stories of lost towns, forgotten people and real events that simply bring Ohio to life. If you like Ohio, if you consider yourself a true blue Buckeye or knows somebody who fancies themselves an Ohian through and through, you will not be disappointed with this wonderful collection of stories.

I love this type of history. It details some the quirky sites found across the state. As an untrained historian, I have often asked myself what happened here or who began this community. This book and its earlier cousin answer those questions and many more about Ohio locales. Randy McNutt always peaks my desire to visit where he has already been and to seek out similar sites on my own. That is why my cameras and I roam Ohio preserving history one photo at a time.

Very informative book. Have made many trips to Ohio, but I have learned a lot about Ohio that I did not know. Hope to enjoy more books by this author.
