Well, Jefferson-staters, there will be a new publication hitting the stands in the next month or two, which targets the region we all love — the State of Jefferson! It is being called JEFFERSON BACKROADS and is being published and edited by Michelle Fain. I’m looking forward to seeing it and hopefully it will serve the community well. I will be authoring a column or article each month about some historic or intriguing location within the “state!” It will be free to the public but hopefully will attract advertisers who can help the publication. For more information, interested readers and/or advertisers should contact Ms. Fain at email@example.com. A website will be going up soon.
Ankle High and Knee Deep: Women Reflect on Western Rural Life is an engaging collection of essays written by ranch women, cowgirls, and farmers. The anthology, edited by Gail L. Jenner, offers a candid look at rural life, its tranquil beauty and its messiness. This anthology is about lessons learned, sometimes the hard way.
