Arcadia Publishing is currently searching for qualified writers and historians to join with us in an exciting new publishing venture to document America's epic story. Following the nationwide success of our town-by-town pictorial history series, Images of America, Arcadia is now developing a list of narrative-based books featuring the history of towns and cities around the country. Books in the new Making of America series contain a comprehensive, chronological history of a community's development over the centuries, highlighting major events, such as the American Revolution, the Civil War, and the Great Depression, that had an impact on its citizens and landscape. The narrative consists of roughly 45,000 to 55,000 words and is accompanied by 120 historic and relevant images (photographs, postcards, sketches, advertisements, maps, etc). These books strive to be both highly readable and highly visual.
