Jim Signs New Highway to History Nov. 19
Jim will be signing copies of his newest book, HIGHWAY TO HISTORY: A MIDLAND TRAIL SCRAPBOOK, from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 19, at Cabell-Huntington Convention and Visitors Center at Heritage Station.
The 112-page softback volume is a colorful word and picture look at the historic highway which stretches across West Virginia from White Sulphur Springs to Kenova.
HIGHWAY TO HISTORY is bargain-priced at $17.95. Jim also will have a limited number of his earlier books available for purchase.
The Midland Trail is a highway to history. In the country’s earliest years, it carried the tide of settlement westward. During the Civil War, both Union and Confederate troops marched along it. In the years before World War I, it became a link in a great transcontinental roadway. When numbered highways were introduced, it was designated U.S. 60. Today, there’s history waiting around every bend of its 180 miles.
