  • More About This Book
Walker County is a unique place inhabited by a unique people. Characters including George "Goober" Lindsey, Tallulah Bankhead, Sybil Gibson, and Eric "Butterbean" Esch, and communities including Cordova, Carbon Hill, and Day's Gap and Horse Creek-or as we know them today, Oakman and Dora-have all contributed to the county's rich history. In this volume of vintage postcard images, readers will learn how the town of Jasper avoided extinction, visit the old Walker County Courthouse that burned six times, and discover which town in Walker County began as Bald Eagle.
