Author Lance Armstrong has captured the soul of our community (Elk Grove, California) with his wonderfully entertaining book "Echoes of Yesterday Elk Grove".

I have reviewed dozens of local history books from around the country in the last decade but I have found none done better than this book. It is local history but it is really about American social and cultural history and that makes good reading no matter where you live. He has created a book that even those who who do not live near Elk Grove will enjoy reading.

This book gives a slice of life that is long gone in small town America. It is well written and the old photos really capture a "Norman Rockwell like" kind of past. The people of Elk Grove finally have their history saved for feature generations.

The book is a treasure chest of information. I enjoyed it greatly and know others will as well. I give this book FIVE STARS!!!
