Using contemporary color photographs, Survivors treats the reader to a statewide tour of Missouri’s remaining 19th century county courthouses.

Packed with interesting historical facts and human interest tidbits, Survivors pays tribute to these important community assets. This is the 2011 second edition and contains updates from the original book first published in 2000.
