Product Information

These books are packed with images and stories about the history in this area.  They are perfect for research or just a good read.  

The establishment of the Santa Fe Trail, along with the Kaw Indian reservation and the influx of white settlers answering the unyielding call of Manifest Destiny, set the scene for Morris County and its part in the epic story of the American West and Bleeding Kansas. Millions of dollars in goods and hundreds of thousands of men passed through Morris County during that era, and inevitably it became the stomping ground of many notable historic figures, both famous and infamous. "Bloody" Bill Anderson, Dick Yeager, Jack McDowell, Jesse Chisholm, and George Armstrong Custer are just a few of the names that have made Morris County legendary. Since Morris County has been tamed, it has been known as prime cattle country and farmland and is home to the Council Grove Federal Reservoir, which brings in thousands of water-skiers, anglers, boaters, and campers every year.

About the Author:

As the only barber in the county, Derrick Doty has had a great opportunity to hear and preserve local stories. As an active member of the Morris County Historical Society and a board member of the Historic Preservation Corporation, Doty has spent much time researching and unearthing Morris County history.
