Het Drenthe Boek Het Drenthe Boek

by Gerding, M.A.W.,

This book on the Northern Dutch province of Drenthe presents a colourful overview of its long history of which the hunebed grave site, a dolmen, very likely goes back the furthest while the annual Assen motor race TT belongs to the more recent sports events. The book features about 350 illustrations and photographs of situations between those two bookends in Drenthe history. Some show very far-reaching events including disasters, victories and also insignificant everyday occurrences. The chapters cover eras chronologically with each focusing on their societal landmarks. For example, the most recent era details the demise of the village store and the rise of self-service stores. Photographs, postcards, and archival and museum items all are part of this very useful resource. Anyone wishing to enhance their understanding of life in Drenthe will appreciate the book as a way to provide context to the times in which ancestors lived in that part of the country. Each page feature an illustration with a concise caption that tells its story. A $29.95 value. NOW on sale!
