|About the Book|
Very interesting guide to Northwestern Ohio. Of course its from the 1940s so not everything is the same these days, but Ive found some new places to visit. This guide also offers a pretty detailed historical account of the area and its people. The most interesting figure by a long shot would be the criminal, Sile Doty. He wasnt from Bryan or Williams County but part of his criminal ring and exploits had him in the area. Based on what he was able to get away with, Im very surprised I hadnt heard of him before reading this book! I seriously want to read a copy of his autobiography, Life of Silas Doty, 1800-1876: A forgotten autobiography- the most noted thief and daring burglar of his time.!
