Below is a description of the book taken from its back cover.

"History is best remembered by telling the stories of the people who lived it. In this book David Strange and Charles Hartley have searched Bullitt County's past, both distant and recent, and come up with this collection of stories, mostly told from the perspective of those who lived them.

"Here you will find stories of turkey farms, train wrecks, salt making, horse racing, civil war adventures, how some places got their names, feuds, 'devil wagons,' airports and balloon flights, arists, schools and educators, lawyers and judges, a footrace to Louisville, good music, the Glass House Restaurant, the Old Stone Jail, school exams, and much more.

"Each story is told with a reverence and humor that only memories can bring.

"This is history that everyone can enjoy, even if you have never heard of Bullitt County before. Join us as we share our Bullitt County Memories."
