    I've been looking forward to this book so much ~ maybe I expected too much from it. I was eager to see photos of the area from the days my family lived there. What I got was a scrapbook for a very few families in the area. I can't believe that finding a wider range of historic photos of the area was that difficult. Now I'm wondering if the other books in this series I used to think was awesome are similarly narrow in scope...I just don't recognize the deficiency for the areas I'm unfamiliar with I've been looking forward to this book so much ~ maybe I expected too much from it.

Anyone interested in old photos of this area would be better served by the History of Avery County Facebook page.
