“We can’t cling to the past, but I definitely don’t think we can put it aside or run away from it. The past includes everything we ever learned. As a publisher of history books, I can tell you that “the past” sells very well, not just in the West but in the US. We don’t have to tell the same few stories over and over. Some stories that have been neglected are waiting for someone to tell them.” – Nancy Curtis, High Plains Press
