 The Authors

 Co-authors are Terry King, a 20-year veteran of the Anderson Fire Department, and Jim Jackson, born and raised in Anderson.  They both became concerned that old photos, data, and memorabilia would be lost if no one was collecting and preserving historic items.

They have worked together to bring an exhaustive 1,000-page history of the Anderson Fire Department and a simultaneous history of the City of Anderson.

M. T. Publishing Company is offering this extensive and massive history for a special price if pre-ordered by June 16, 2014.

 History of Anderson, Indiana and Its Fire Department

 Tragedy, comedy, and an abundance of everyday living are vital parts of this history of the Anderson Fire Department and the City of Anderson.  This publication, starting in 1851, tells  the story about devastating fires in Anderson's early history and the need for fire protection.  You'll see the development of the city's water works, the volunteers that pulled a pumping cart across town by hand at the gong of the court house bell and the innovations of machinery, communications and equipment used by firefighters.  The book culminated with the Anderson High School fire.

The book will be 9" x 12" with approximately 1,000 pages, a deluxe hardbound cover and a full-color dust jacket.  The special pre-order price is $79.95 for the deluxe standard, or $109.95 for a genuine bonded leather edition.  A digital edition is also available for $14.95 in conjunction with a hardcover book purchase.  You can choose to have your copy personalized with name stamping on the cover for $7.00 per book.
