Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0738598755, Paperback)

Newton, Kansas, was established by the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad as a new railhead for the Chisholm Cattle Trail in 1871. After two years as the wildest cow town in the West, Newton became a center for Mennonite migration and wheat production in east central Kansas, with the railroad moving it all. In addition to eastern European immigrants and hard winter wheat seed, the rails brought even more people from differing backgrounds, all of whom helped the town grow and change. Images of America: Newton shows those people and the places where they worked, worshipped, and played and includes many photographs from residents’ family albums in addition to images from public archives. Meet the residents of this “Crossroads of Kansas” city, from the locally famous to the folks next door, in the pages of Newton.
