Ohio bookfest

Looks like it's book week here in the Midwest -- except that most of these books are too heavy to hold up at the beach!

If you're already familiar with the web site and books put out by Ohio University Press and Swallow Press, you know all this. If not, you have some fun coming. They are reissuing the out-of-print 2001 The Documentary Heritage of Ohio in paper. Edited by Philip R. Shriver and Clarence E. Wunderlin, Jr., it seeks to provide "eyewitness, first-person narratives that will make the reader want to turn the page and keep on reading" -- another place where history, microhistory, and genealogy cross paths. And don't miss the related books on the same web page.
