In Newton County Memories, author Randy Turner, a veteran newspaper reporter and classroom teacher, offers stories about the people, places and activities that made living in Newton County, Missouri memorable. Those who have lived in the area can relive an era before texting and binge watching, when evening entertainment included cruising the Neosho Square, sports including baseball and the dangerous, but addictive bicycle soccer and meeting friends at the Brown Derby and Reta's. The memorable characters profiled in Newton County Memories include a 400-pound police chief who never had trouble maintaining law and order, the "cold-blooded assassin" who shot the student council president, the coach who started a civil war in his family by having his brother intentionally walked with the bases loaded and the woman mayor who was a Mann. Turner also profiles some of the people who inspired others, including unforgettable classroom teachers, a breast cancer survivor who helped others for more than three decades after her initial diagnosis and a 20-year-old murder victim whose life and poetry live on more than four decades later. Newton County Memories is an engaging trip down memory lane even. Turner captures the era in a way that will ensure these people will remain in readers' memories, even if they are reading about them for the first time.

John Calvin Allen, professionally known as J. C., worked as a photographer for Purdue University from 1909-1952, and operated his own photography business until his death in 1976. The J. C. Allen photographs represent a historical account of the transition from pioneer practices to scientific methodologies in agriculture and rural communities. During this major transitional period for agriculture, tractors replaced horses, hybrid corn supplanted open-pollinated corn, and soybeans changed from a novelty crop to regular rotation on most farms. During this time, purebred animals with better genetic pedigrees replaced run-of-the-mill livestock, and systematic disease prevention in cattle, swine, and poultry took place. Allen's photographs also document clothing styles, home furnishings, and the items people thought important as they went about their daily lives. Looking closely at tractors, livestock, wagons, planters, sprayers, harvesting equipment, and crops gives one a sense of the changing and fast-paced world of agriculture at that time. This volume contains over 900 picturesque images, most never-before-seen, of men, women, and children working on the farm, which remain powerful reminders of life in rural America at the turn of the twentieth century. As old farmhouses and barns fall victim to age, Allen photographs are all that remain. While those people and times no longer exist today, they do remain "alive" because of the preservation of that history on film. A camera in his hands and an eye for photography allowed Allen to create indelible visual histories that continue to tell the story of agriculture and rural life from long ago.

“Country Trails and Tales” entertainingly combines humor and drama, some worthy of movie scripts, into tales leaving the reader yearning to return to simpler more treasured times. The book transcends time and provides readers with a venture back to the cherished days of their youth. Recalling fall festivals, hay rides, apple bobbing’s, and pastimes such as having fun at the old swimming hole should boost this work to the top of one’s reading list. Remembering school days, youthful crushes, first kisses, romantic triumphs and disappointments, and life shaping events which occurred during childhood adds additional flavor to the book. Regardless as to whether one gets excited thinking about the sands cool grit between barefoot toes, or watermelons cooling in the creek’s edge, readers won’t be disappointed in this nostalgic spellbinding look back to yesteryear.

This book is about what I remember about many members of my family and about the knowledge I obtained about them through various interviews and written sources, e.g., obituaries, newspapers, and articles I found on the Internet. The book follows a certain order. I describe what I remember about my immediate family members. I start off with my father then my mother and then my brother—the only sibling I ever had. I then discuss my life with my ex-wife and her family and then the only child we ever had. I go on to another chapter, or maybe the third chapter, and talk about my paternal grandfather’s family and as much of what I could remember about my maternal grandmother’s family. I know and discovered more about the former than the latter. I enhanced my discussion throughout the book with as many pictures as I could gather. The book has pictures anywhere from one to about eighty years old. This, I thought, would make the book more interesting and lively. The book is replete with explanatory footnotes for those of certain generations or knowledge who may not understand or know of certain places, celebrities, cultural practices, and events. The entire book was prepared to relate to all who might read it in terms of family connections, their interest(s) in travel, history, sports, genealogy, and biography. I then talk about my maternal grandmother’s family. It is relatively short because I did not know too many of them that well. The book covers mostly what I know and found out about my maternal grandfather’s family. That is because it is the largest segment of my entire family. My father had no siblings, whereas my mother had about ten or eleven siblings, and all of them had children and grandchildren. I discovered a great deal more accomplishments in life on my mother’s side as opposed to my father’s side of the family. I do not think the book is boring or particularly too long or too short. The book is a description of the life of the people whom I discuss and how I might have fitted into those lives.

My book is about everything that I know about my family, both about my mother’s and father’s side of the family in addition to my interactions towards or with each of them. I was inspired by a late great maternal uncle to pursue such a project. First, I re-collected everything that I could about various family members. It was simply a matter of thinking about what I know and what I could jot down on paper in the comfortable setting of my home or automobiles. I conducted a vast number of interviews from members of each side of the family. This was after I organized a family tree and decided to proceed from that. Those interviews led me to further interviews. Wherever and whenever I could, I got many telephone numbers and e-mail addresses. Sometimes, I researched the Internet when given information about their affiliations or personal pursuits. I utilized other sources in addition to interviews. Some sources included obituaries, books, magazines, newspaper articles, and just plain statistics regarding whatever endeavors they had, such as with my only child. Pursuing this type of manuscript required hard work, devotion, and perseverance. This book serves as an encouragement to others to do family research and record whatever they find. One should only seek the positive and sidestep the negative. One derives a great deal of joy and satisfaction from engaging in such a project. This work is a reflection of you and how you see things in the lenses of your life. I hope that many who read this book take it upon themselves to do the same as I have done. Doing this work was truly a joy and a blessing.
