Taking readers from the Northwest Indian War to post-industrial Toledo in the early-twenty-first century, Tedd Long traces the stories of famous and not-so-famous visitors to Northwest Ohio and uncovers the surprising details of their stay in his book, Forgotten Visitors; Northwest Ohio's Notable Guests. As a master storyteller, Long goes beyond the simple questions of who, when, and where as he keenly explores the alluring backstories and subplots of the local stopovers as an entertaining way to help readers appreciate the history of the Maumee Valley.

From Mark Twain to Sarah Bernhardt, Zebulon Pike to Wrong Way Corrigan, Forgotten Visitors is a fascinating collection of twenty-five intriguing stories that will enliven and charm anyone who has a passion for the stories of Northwest Ohio.

This special pre-order pricing is $7 off the retail price of $24.95. It is only available on the UT Press website, and only for a limited time. Your book will ship in November!
