National Grange releases 5th e-book: First Century of Service

By National Grange Press Release (11/6/12)

  NOVEMBER 17, 2012 --

On Nov. 6, the National Grange released its fifth e-book, “First Century of Service and Evolution: The Grange, 1867-1967,” as a Kindle download available through Amazon’s Kindle Store. Written by W.L. Robinson, the book looks at the first 100 years of the National Grange of the Order of Patrons of Husbandry.

The digital version of the 1967 text has 120 pages, including index, introduction and footnotes.

“‘W.L. Robinson did a great job chronicling the first hundred years of the National Grange of Patrons of Husbandry,” National Grange President Ed Luttrell said. “We have evolved from being a strictly agricultural organization to one that is prevalent with all members of society. It is a fascinating look on how we got to where we are.”

The National Grange has signed a 90-day exclusivity deal for “First Century of Service” with Amazon and the Amazon Kindle Store. The e-book will be added to the Barnes and Noble Nook Store after the exclusivity deal expires.

“Friend of the Farmer,” the National Grange’s previous e-book release, is now available for sale on both the Amazon Kindle Store and the Barnes and Noble Nook Store, while “Legal and Economic Influence of Grange,” “Notes and Quotes” and “Proud Heritage” are still under Amazon’s exclusivity deals. The National Grange is set to release the 1984 book “People, Pride and Progress” in digital format before the start of the 146th Annual National Grange Convention in Boise, Idaho, Nov. 13 through 17.

“These books tell a very interesting history of the American people, spirit and culture,” Luttrell said.

“First Century of Service and Evolution: The Grange, 1867-1967″ is available as an e-book for $4.99, the same price as “Friend of the Farmer,” “Legal and Economic Influence of the Grange,” “Notes and Quotes” and “Proud Heritage.”  GET IT NOW!
