also known as "Twin Peaks" or "Twin Buttes" to locals

So, here it is, at long last: Images of America: New River
I collected far too many stories and bits of local history to include in this volume. I also photographed the places I visited along the way and, as the current book is solely comprised of vintage photos, I could not include the current photos. In the future, I'll release the longer, more complete story of New River with the "now" photos to complement the "then" photos of the current book.
For now, I'm enjoying sharing New River's story with anyone who wishes to hear it. Thanks to the families who shared their photos with me, I can also share the area's images with you.
Jerry Jacka and Lois Essary Jacka generously contributed a tremendous amount of photos and information. For an outstanding history of the Jacka's historic Sun-Up Ranch, contact Jerry directly: Jerry Jacka's Website. (You'll also want to look at Jerry and Lois' other stunning books!)
