Sebastian and Crawford Counties are among Arkansas's most historic areas with their location on what was once the edge of the frontier. In this book, the authors capture the transition of both the large and the small communities from the 1800s into the middle of the 20th century through historic postcards. With carefully researched interpretation of the images, the book offers a fascinating walk through time along the streets of bustling Fort Smith and Van Buren, tiny hamlets, and even a trip up historic Highway 71 to Mount Gaylor.
