Format: Paperback
Although the book focuses on images of Clinton County, PA, it truly presents a broader and fascinating perspective on the people and the development of small communities throughout the US. This compelling pictorial history takes one through the development of transportation via wagon, train, boat, and airplane, the rise and fall of lumbering and other industries, the evolution of education from one-room schoolhouses to universities, the strong sense of service of local citizens, the effects of natural disasters, and social activities in the days before television, movies, and the Internet.

I loved the images of the people the most: the eight man lumber crew standing ready with saws and moonshine, miners, factory workers, merchants with all sorts of wares, schoolchildren, college students (as early as 1895), soldiers, and people attending all sorts social outings and sporting events--skating on the frozen river, bathing in the creek, clowning in a parade, and even men and women swapping hats.

Don't miss this delightful book!

It's said that those that forget their history are doomed to repeat it, at least that's what my American history teacher kept telling me. It's been some time since a book on Clinton County has been released, and this will make a fine addition to your book shelf. The book by Eric M. Smith has some great vintage photos and interesting history. Hey, if you don't know where you've been, how do you know where you are going???

I was born and raised in Clinton County and have reached the age of wanting to learn more about where I was born. I liked it.

Clinton County has a tremendously interesting history and broad composition. This account is a lazy re-capitulation of various floods taken from the pages of the Lock Haven Express. As one whose paternal Family settled in Clinton County in the 1840's, I am most disappointed in the superficial and constricted nature of this account.
