An unforgettable and sweeping family saga from Markus Zusak, the storyteller who gave us the extraordinary bestseller THE BOOK THIEF, lauded by the New York Times as "the kind of book that can be lifechanging." The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance. At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle. The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome? Written in powerfully inventive language and bursting with heart, BRIDGE OF CLAY is signature Zusak.

Once there were hundreds of 19th-century and very early 20th-century covered bridges in Indiana--so many in fact, that the state ranked third in the nation in the number of structures still standing. By the early 1930s and 1940s, a movement was afoot to preserve those magnificent structures that had not already disappeared due to desertion and deterioration. Some were saved, but many were not. What was saved and cherished, however, was an abundance of vintage black and white images taken by pioneer photographers who willingly trekked from bridge to bridge decades ago. Captured in this volume are nearly 200 of those photographs from the mid-20th century and before, representing more than 36 Indiana counties from Adams County to Wells County.

LeRoy is best known as the “Birthplace of Jell-O,” but few people know that in 1929 it had one of the finest private airports in the United States and was home to Amelia Earhart’s airplane, the Friendship. In the 19th century, LeRoy was known for Igham University, one of the first colleges for women and the first to grant a four-year degree. First settled in 1797, LeRoy has produced patent medicines, salt, limestone, dynamite, plows, agricultural commodities, stoves, organs, insulators, and a myriad of other products. Located on the eastern edge of Genesee County and 30 miles southwest of Rochester, LeRoy originally depended on water power from the Oatka Creek and was soon serviced by several railroads. It was also a station on the Underground Railroad.
