It was the pull of the steam engine that brought residents to Summers County after the Civil War. With Hinton as a bustling hub of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad, Summers County found itself along the path of goods and travelers going to and from Richmond and the Midwest. Surrounded by breathtaking scenery and good mountain air, residents prospered in the county, building beautiful homes and lively communities. Lumber and riverboat traffic also added to the scene, although it was around the C&O that the area's culture truly thrived. Legends such as John Henry, the Steel Drivin' Man who out-drilled a steam drill while digging the Great Bend Tunnel, came to symbolize the grit-and-steel consciousness of this West Virginia county. Life was good, but work was hard. When diesel engines became the norm in the 1950s, Summers County's fabric began to change. Today tourism and recreation are the greatest industries in the area, but residents have not forgotten their past. Each year the county taps into its railroading heritage with festivals and celebrations, and efforts are being made to preserve some of Hinton's unique architecture.

English and Welsh Quakers moving north from Philadelphia were the first European settlers to come to Quakertown in the early eighteenth century. German immigrants followed soon afterward and, together with their neighbors, formed this diverse community. The earliest settlement, beginning in 1716 and known as Rich Land, followed the path of the stagecoach on its route from Philadelphia to Allentown. Today, that path is Main Street, which has retained its old meetinghouse and Red Lion Inn. Historical places such as these, along with countless memorable people, events, and legends, make up Quakertown, a fascinating photographic record of this historic community. Quakertown was incorporated in 1855 and became a place where business and industry succeeded, leaders developed a respected school system, and volunteers organized their efforts to provide protection and services to residents. The stunning images in Quakertown not only chronicle physical changes that have occurred over one hundred fifty years but also convey the industrious and cooperative spirit of the people who shaped the town.

This is the story of Mick Scott, some of which is based on the author's Vietnam wartime experiences as an Air Force correspondent for Armed Forces Radio. In the fictionalized version of events, on his way to Vietnam, Scott is ordered to report to US Intelligence in San Francisco where he is recruited for a special assignment. It entails finding a Saigon street kid who is the long-lost son of a top North Vietnamese Communist official; perhaps Ho Chi Minh himself. Once found, intelligence hopes to use the kid as a pawn in peace negotiations. Meanwhile, Scott travels throughout Vietnam as a reporter, which provides a vehicle to impart what is happening in arguably the most pivotal year of the war; 1967-68, with the Tet Offensive as the catalytic episode. As the story progresses, he crosses paths with a double agent, and the infamous Panther Lady, who is riding around Saigon on a motorbike gunning down GIs. Along with them, the kid intelligence wants him to find, and his drinking buddy Bobby, Scott becomes entangled in a sticky web of intrigue and deceit.
