“If you are fortunate enough to live and work on the land you and generations of your people have lived and worked, you possess the greatest of gifts: a true and abiding sense of place.” So begin the lyrical, sun-splashed pages of The Booksmith Group’s newest book, Sumner County, Tennessee.
The book celebrates in words and pictures, the high quality of life enjoyed by the residents of this scenic Tennessee region. Sumner County, Tennessee looks at life in the eight cities included in the county: Gallatin, Goodlettsville, Hendersonville, Millersville, Mitchellville, Portland, Westmoreland, and White House. Minutes away from the bustle of Nashville, Sumner County residents enjoy the rolling bluegrass, Old Hickory Lake, and some of the state’s finest golf courses. Sumner County is not just for residents: alongside the residents, tourists enjoy the diverse cultural offerings, including the Sumner County Symphony, Portland’s Strawberry Festival, Gallatin’s Main Street Festival, White House’s Harvest Moon Festival and a host of other cultural and social events.
Sumner County, Tennessee is a coffee table book that displays the best the region has to offer. Developed by The Booksmith Group in cooperation with local organizations including the Forward Sumner Economic Council, Sumner Regional Medical Center, the Hoeganaes Corporation, and a host of others, this book is a superb showcase for the photographs by Jim Spitler and essays by Williams Puryear, Tena Lee, and Chuck Creasy.
