Hmmmmm. Did the just-passing October storm, with record-setting barometric lows, remind you of the alleged October storm of 1919, and the "Account of the curious events at DEVIL'S JUMP-OFF"? Now THAT was a storm! Doc (Duclos) Win Working and the boys from Henderson Hook & Ladder No. 1, had quite a time steering the old 1917 Reo through the snowy, white-out night on their way to the Devil's Jump-Off. The story, of course, is about the curious events that were taking place out at the Jump-Off. I wonder what the barometric reading was that night?
Only a few copies of the Devil's Jump-Off book remain. When they're gone, Poof! No more. You can still get one online at www.growingupinhenderson.com
for only $12.00. And the twelve bucks goes right to the Joseph R. Brown Society. You get an interesting book AND help the Brown Society. Now that's a win-win.
My latest book, "Growing Up In Henderson: One More Time," is also available online, as well as at a number of businesses around town. Now just $15.00, all of the proceeds go the Joe Brown bust statue fund.
Stock up now for fireside winter reading. Tales about Henderson you probably never knew.
