This book contains newspaper clippings from the earliest and longest published newspaper in Walker County, Alabama. The Mountain Eagle first published in 1872, but the earliest available issues date from 1884. Other gaps occur in 1887, 1888, and parts of 1891, 1892, and 1895. The rest of the remaining issues were examined page by page for births, marriages, deaths, and relevant historical news items pertaining to the early development of Walker County. The result is a very interesting read, full of rare obituaries and historical accounts. The information was compiled from microfilm from the Alabama State Archives in Montgomery and microfilm from Samford University in Birmingham. The book contains a full name index.
