LOOKING BACK: THE BEST OF GLENN TUNNEY, VOLUME TWO.
2011 by Glenn Tunney.
The history and nostalgia series that debuted in 2010 with LOOKING BACK: THE BEST OF GLENN TUNNEY is back with the second volume in this series, featuring more great stories culled from Glenn Tunney's popular newspaper column. These are tales with nostalgic themes that will have universal appeal for all readers.
The book's central figures are a revered teacher who left behind a puzzling mystery; the cast-aside librarian whose determination built a second career and forged Brownsville's [Pa.] new public library; the much-loved band director whose high school band won a national championship; the jack-of-all-trades who has witnessed nearly a century of Brownsville's history; the unsung public servant who served his community for over fifty years; and many more.
Have you tried spider webs or castor oil to cure what ails you? How about a dip in Sulfur Creek for poison ivy? Recall those pink chicks and onion skin-dyed eggs for Easter?
Here are the stories of the storm that unsteepled a Brownsville church . . . a treasure-filled Brownsville-built steamboat discovered forty feet beneath a Midwestern corn field . . . trucks whose brakes called it quits descending Brownsville's hills . . . and some remarkable and moving stories, told in words and pictures, of life in Brownsville during World War II.
Finally, as a special feature, an all-photo chapter showcases twenty rare photographs of nineteenth-century Brownsville, complete with detailed captions, from the archives of two longtime collectors of historic Brownsville images.
Volume Two of LOOKING BACK: THE BEST OF GLENN TUNNEY features more than ninety pictures in all, complementing many entertaining and enlightening stories. Enjoy the second volume of this planned five-book series as you sit back, open to the first page, and travel back to those "good old days!"
