This book tells the hundred-year history of Three Rivers, 1850s to the 1950s. Three Rivers has always been a special place; one of rolling wooded hills, nestled close to the high mountains; those mountains feed the rivers that give the place its name. It was an ideal place for the pioneers of this story to settle.
The book is divided into two basic parts: the first tells the story of events and places; it tells what life was like for those hardy souls who homesteaded in these hills. The second part relates stories and histories about individual people and their families - when they came to Three Rivers - when they arrived, and how their lives and the lives of their families were impacted by living here. Did they thrive? Did they go elsewhere to search for their dream? The author has endeavored to answer these questions.
