"Written in order to inform our present and future generations of the life and achievements of their ancestors who laid the foundations for a rich life in this community." - from Dedication page. "Provides the family histories of the settlers of the Fosston district from the time of 1905 until 1980. The numerous photographs tell their own story depicting types of homes, modes of transportation, farming procedures, sports enjoyed and growth in community life. Since schools were great focal points of interest in the life of the residents we have a selection devoted to the school districts of Fosston Rural, Hopeful, Mallard, Hoosehorn #2, Orpington, Ponass Lake and Fosston Hamlet. The spiritual life of the early setters is very evident as we note the faiths which made it possible to erect the churches of Bethel Lutheran, Bobulynci, Evangelical Free, St. Mary's Roman Catholic, Ukrainian Orthodox, and the St. John's Greek Catholic Church." - from Foreward. Bright gilt lettering and illustration upon front board and spine. Clean and unmarked but for ink stamp and 2"x3" application of liquid paper upon front free endpaper. Binding tight. Quality copy.
