The book is around 452 pages with a couple pages at the end for your personal notes

I am a member of the P.E.O. Sisterhood, so throughout the book it is favored by mentioning ladies holding membership in the early 1900's. Also a story of the beginning of P.E.O. Chapter CO in Denison.

The book begins and ends with a Bible verse - God was guiding my ideas in writing (or putting together this book).

The "authors" of this book are truly the people who lived in Denison and other villages 100 years ago - I am only putting their life style to pen and paper.

Before reading this book, please note that I have purposely left the spelling and terminology in its original form. I hope you will enjoy reading this as much as I have enjoyed compiling all the fun and informational history of our ancestors.

It is a joy for me to have remarks on the back cover from Eric Braeden, Film and television icon and Emmy award winning star of CBS's The Young And The Restless (Victor Newman).
