Summary, etc.:
"Monroe County: Everyday Life in Indiana showcases the transformations time has delivered to Monroe County since it was established in 1818. Nestled amidst the wooded rolling hills of south-central Indiana, Monroe County has seen tremendous changes in transportation, education, modes of entertainment, foodways and approaches to childhood. This book stages this gradual yet astonishing transformation through depictions of the everyday life in Monroe County's residents in more than 275 never-before-published photographs. These captivating images reveal how residents grew up, worked, traveled, and played in Monroe County through the decades and how the community developed and thrived despite wars, depressions, and other turbulent times." -- From cover.
