ON THE BACK COVER
Sumner County, like many of the counties of Tennessee, V finds itself ever-expanding, growing from a predominantly agricultural community once marked by expansive horse farms, a colorful patchwork of sharecroppers' fields, and extravagant antebellum homes into a county full of modern-day luxuries and conveniences. Over the past 100 years, curvy, dusty farm roads eventually evolved into paved highways and interstates, and "mom and pop" stores gave way to supermarkets and expansive malls. Around Gallatin and Sumner County Volume II continues to explore and celebrate the Sumner County of yesteryear.
In this volume, readers will enjoy strolling through old neighborhoods, meeting local celebrities such as "Tippy" Crutcher, FrelAstair's stand-in, holding their breath as they marvel at Crash Brown's stunt drivers, busting up illegal moonshine stills on the outskirts of town, walking through the doors of the growing industries, and gazing at grand buildings torn down in the name of progress. Through these fascinating images and their stories, this book shares a more personal side of Gallatin and Sumner County that cannot always be found in history books-a side that celebrates the everyday lives and activities of its citizens.
Authors DeeGee Lester and Kenneth Calvin Thomson Jr. have created another visual tour of Sumner County that will bring back to life many of the important pieces of the county's past. Around Gallatin and Sumner County Volume II serves as a fitting tribute to the people who have changed Sumner County and to their hard work and determination toward making the community a better place to live.
