Cornerstones & Communities is much more than a reliable resource for the details of chronology and political boundaries. Author, William Virden weaves colorful lore into this fascinating study. The expansive text is seasoned with the true-to-life stories of old west cowboy towns, spectacular mining booms and busts, gritty cattle ranchers and beet farmers, city thoroughfares, and snowy-slopes-turned-big-industry. Virden completes the vivid histories with descriptions of each courthouses unique architectural style.
