By National Grange Press Release (11/9/12)

  NOVEMBER 19, 2012 --

On Nov. 9, the National Grange released its sixth e-book, “People, Pride and Progress: 125 Years of the Grange in America,” as a Kindle download available through Amazon’s Kindle Store. The text, written by David H. Howard, is an examination of the first 125 years of the Grange.

The digital version of the 1992 text has 219 pages, including index, introduction and footnotes.

“’People, Pride and Progress’ shows exactly why the Grange has been such a powerful force in American agricultural life for the last hundred years. ” National Grange President Ed Luttrell said. “This book is a must read for anyone interested in the people behind such a storied organization.”

The National Grange has signed a 90-day exclusivity deal for “People, Pride and Progress” 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,” “Proud Heritage” and “First Century of Service” are still under Amazon’s exclusivity deals.

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

“People, Pride and Progress: 125 Years of the Grange in America” 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,” “Proud Heritage” and “First Century of Service.”  GET IT NOW!
