"Legendary Locals of Ashland"

Arcadia Publishing

Arcadia Publishing has figured out how to sell a lot of books in a lot of small towns. 

Arcadia publishes books of historical pictures from towns all over the country. 

The second wave is a set of books about the "Legendary Locals;" the noteworthy people in the history of a community. 

Legendary Locals of Ashland is now out. 

Author and frequent local newspaper contributor Sam Wheeler joins us to talk about the process and the people.
