We are pleased to announce the release of Echoes From Catawba Volume 4. The book launch will be held Saturday, December 11 at the Salem Museum located at 801 Main Street from 10 – 3.
Not only has the Salem Museum graciously agreed to host our book launch, but they have also created an amazing exhibit featuring The Other Side of the Mountain: Life in the Catawba Valley based on the Echoes From Catawba book series. The exhibit will continue through March 2022. See the press release here and read all about it…
Volume 4 of Echoes From Catawba is the final book of the “Echoes” series portraying the people, places, and times of Catawba Valley. Volume four stays true to the format of the previous three. In this fourth book, there is a heartwarming story of a little girl spending her summers at Craig Healing Springs in what was a fairyland experience. The Great Wagon Road, how McAfee Knob got its name, and the first Boy Scout Troop are articles in Volume four. For the first time, Lower Catawba and its people will be featured. A profile of two of the 17 member Garman family will appear along with the second-largest family (Martins) to settle in Catawba. The back-story of the Homeplace Restaurant and the Wingate family promises to be of interest to many readers.
Echoes From Catawba Volume 4 will be available at the Salem Museum, The Emporium in New Castle, and echoesfromcatawba.com.
Copies of Volumes 1, 2, and 3 will also be available at the book signing. There are a LIMITED NUMBER of Hardback books of Volumes one, two, and three. Only sixty-five copies of Volume 1, thirty-two copies of Volume 2, and 110 copies of Volume 3. Paperback copies will continue to be available through Amazon.
