Overview

In the early 1970s, the quiet Ohio village of New Burlington was abandoned to allow construction of a dam.


John Baskin lived in New Burlington for its final year, commemorating and recording its residents' heartbreaking stories. The result is one of the most unique and beautiful histories ever written about rural America. This edition features a new introduction by the author.

The book is very well written and accurate. I am the 'Sandy' in the chapter 'The Operator'.
