Holiday gifts from Redmen Hall

New at Redmen Hall: The Magic of the Backwoods Kitchen, by local author Donna Gatens-Klint. Much more than a collection of recipes, this charming book uses historic photographs and stories to illustrate local kitchen life and mealtimes in the early 1900's. You'll find Scandinavian recipes galore, plus the photos include local sights such as the Grays River covered bridge, also historic and recent photos of area families.
Next Sunday (Dec 5th) from 1 to 3pm, Robert Michael Pyle,
lepidopterist, naturalist and writer from Grays River, will be on hand to sign copies of his recent book:

Mariposa Road, The First Butterfly Big Year. He was commissioned to search for as many butterflies as he could find in a one year road trip. From his mobile office in a used car purchased in Longview, he documented finding over 800 American butterlies during 2008.
