A Unique, Little History of McDonald County Missouri by James Reed

These volumes tell the story of MCDonald County in a rather unique way, by letting the people of the times tell the story.
The information herein was gleaned from the writer's colletion of the "Pineville News", and later the "Pineville Herald", published from 1883 to 1942 by Claiborne Duval, the writer's great-grandfather.
Since the "News", and later "Herald", were published in Pineville, each volume will be most represented by PIneville. Volumes will have different mixes of towns represented, as writers drift away and others arrive to tell of their town and times.
For Pricing and information on all volumes go to the James Reed Books tab

Here are sample page of various volumes.
