About The Book
This is an historical work that gives readers an insight into the life of G.L. Adams, a young editor of a small midwestern town’s periodical, The Fowlerville Review. Adams found the village of Fowlerville in 1874. He determined that its beginning needed to be chronicled. And so, over the next fifty plus years, Adams put on paper all of the major and minor events that were part of the development of this community—devastating fires, births, deaths, major epidemics, inventions, weddings, and so much more. Adams used humor, flair, and details so that every reader would be able to appreciate the birth and development of the village of Fowlerville, MI.
