Concrete Ready Mixed Page 10 -- The Gienville Democrat/Pathfinder -- Thursday, May 29, 2003 New Book on Judge Wm. Jackson Quarrier Press is pleased to an- nounce the release of it's latest book, On Our Own Soil. This fresh and capitvating biography tells the tale of a controversial Ci vii War hero. briga- dier general William Lowther Jack- son of Parkersburg. Jackson defended the Confederacy's western front with only a few companies of inexperi- enced volunteers. He later served on his cousin Stonewall's staff and in 1863 organized two calvary regiments for Virginia service. During the last year of the war, Jackson's troops bravely defended the Shenandoah Valley. The most fascinating aspect of Jackson and his regiments, how- ever, has been the almost complete erasure of them from most historical annals. On Our Own Soil hopes to change that by taking an honest and unbiased look at the life, career, and charactcr of William Jackson. This book answers the question: 'Why did West Virginia reject Will-" iam Lowthcr Jackson'?' Hopefully, this book will establish Jackson's rightful place in our history as a loyal public servant and judicious leadcr. On OurOwn Soil, is available from Nx~kstores or directly from Pictorial Histories, 1416 Quarrier Street, Charleston, WV 25301.

It was love at first sight. Unfortunately, it was years be- fore he could immerse himself in wood turning. In the course of his life Dave tried his hand at many different occupations: construction, automotive body work, and gold mining. He and his wife moved to plate of the lathe, then the unwork- able parts are removed. As the wood turns on the lathe and the bowl is tormed, the true beauty of the wood is unveiled. He really enjoys the discovery process. His favorite wood is spatted maple+ closely fol- lowed by cherry and then walnut.
