The work of the Society to create this publication was extensive, with travel for interviews and story collection, research, as well as the writing and layout. Printing and binding costs have also increased significantly, resulting in a final price tag for the book that reflects all of these factors.

I would love to know the families that are represented in the book. Price is quite steep without any detail.
Thank you for your feedback Michael; we’re planning to summarize and share more detail of the families covered in an update. Please stay tuned. Also, the extensive work of the Society and increasing printing/binding costs very much went into pricing this publication. We hope people will find great value in it.
I am looking forward to receiving my copy of this LCGS publication. In recent communications with a society member I’ve learned that is book is a fund projects and that a Volume 11 is planned.
Does this book have anything about Pakenham & Riverbend Park Campground. Or anything about the Mississippi River?
