“Echo Hill and Mountain Grove” update:
There are a few last minute changes happening and I am hoping the book can be uploaded for a proof copy within the next two days. I hope you will agree it was well worth your wait. It’s 512 pages jam packed with stories, postcards and photos, and includes a 41-page appendix, and a 20-page index.
In Chapter 4 of Echo Hill and Mountain Grove, Ell Austin marries Emma Parmenter, in Solomon City, Kansas. When Emma’s father Henry dies, she and her sister Sophronia Parmenter (how is that for a name?) inherit 220 acres on the Smoky Hill River.
