COUNTY CHRONICLES, A VIVID COLLECTION OF PENNSYLVANIA HISTORIES: VOLUME I, SECOND EDITION. 2010 by Ceane O'Hanlon-Lincoln. If you haven't yet read a chapter of the award-winning COUNTY CHRONICLES series, you haven't discovered how much fun reading history can be. With meticulous research and her "state-of-the-heart" storytelling, Ceane O'Hanlon-Lincoln breathes life into Pennsylvania's historical figures and events with language that flows and captivates all the senses. Readers don't just read about the events that unfold on County Chronicles' turning pages--they experience them. With the sell-out of the limited edition premiere volume, we've introduced a second edition of Volume I because of popular demand. For this more affordable book, sized to be compatible with the other volumes, the author chose her favorite and best chapters, updated and trimmed them. Don't worry about missing anything--98% of the original volume is included; the other 2% is scattered throughout the other four volumes. With this, you still have the opportunity to collect all five volumes in her fascinating series. SPECIAL PRICE! Buy four of any volumes in the series and get the fifth volume AND shipping FREE!
