This is one of my favorite books to read. Our local library has the book and I love to check it out. I wanted to purchase a copy for myself in print but the only copy I could find in the last 15 years was around $200 at an antique shop. I am from Des Moines County, IA and I am so excited to find this historical gem. My kids and I love to read the names of the people who lived near our home in 1879 and giggle about how the names haven't changed much. Thank you for making this book available for download. Our family appreciates it very much!
I was looking on the Internet for some family history information and stumbled onto this. I've already looked up some family members who lived in Des Moines County in 1879. What a great resource - thanks for making it available!
