Scenes from the Past

Scenes from the Past


A collection of short stories about the history of Vernon County, MO selected from articles written by Nevada Daily Mail society editor Betty Sterett.


“Over  a span of eleven years beginning in 1967, Betty Sterett researched and wrote a series of articles for the Nevada Daily Mail, of which she was society editor and features writer.”
“In 1985, fifty-nine of these wonderful stories were selected and edited by Donna Logan for the first edition of this book. The subjects are as widely different as the personalities: explorers who came this way 300 years ago, the Civil War, streetcars, significant buildings and businesses, and more–so much more that the book has become a prime reference source.”
“Out-of-print for many years, Scenes from the Past has become a collectors’ item. Now, with a new, revised and corrected edition containing twenty essays never before published in book form, readers with even the slightest interest in local history will be entranced.”–Franklin Norman
