Discription: Hardbound in attractive dark blue with gold lettering. Comes with dust cover in white, gold and blue. Printed on sturdy non-glossy paper of typewriter paper size (8 1/2 x 11 inches). Has photographs which are clear and of good quality though book is not lavishly illustrated. Some are formal poses but others informal and of interest, such as the picture of the individual with his prize bull.
Has index but no table of contents.
Print is very readable, perhaps 14 pts, with the names of the subjects larger and in bold font. Cursory examination suggests a literate text.
Each person has one or more paragraphs of information under their name. The essential genealogy information is often accompanied by a line or even paragraphs about certain individuals, especially the more colorful characters.
Has enough white space on the page for insertion of brief notes.
