The Prairie Pebble

Ralph Eugene Root

for the Root Families
Dr. Root finished his writing in 1957, so the writing tools available included a manual typewriter and typing paper.  The chapters of his book are individual PDF documents, scanned from two full-ream boxes of the original typescript pages.  Character recognition and proofreading the result is a task, perhaps, for another time. -- David Tuttle
