… really impressive and full of so much extensive history on the Textile Trail. Thank you all so much for writing/publishing this wonderful book! I’m glad it will be here for many years to come so the next generation will understand this important piece of our West Georgia History and the people who made it. Thanks for telling their stories. –Sara Moore, cover photo contributor.
