A Hole in my World by Ernest Miller

A Hole in my World: Coming of Age in Kansas by Ernest Miller. There is both joy and sorrow in this story of growing up in Kansas under the shadows of schizophrenia, the Great Depression, and World War II. Ernie Miller's boyhood finds the back gate leading to the farm while the front gate opens upon small town adventures. His adolescence was experienced in a boys' detention home, followed by a tour of duty in the United States Navy during the time of the Korean War. Then came service in the YMCA, a college pursuit, and the beginning of a career in education. Proceeds from the book go to Ernie Miller.


In Days Gone By Haysville, Kansas 1870-1920

"In Days Gone By" Haysville, Kansas 1870-1920" edited by Judy Pegg and Ruth Clark. When the City of Haysville entered into the agreement with the State Preservation Officer to do a survey of the original town and surrounding streets, we had no idea of the flood of historical information to be generated. Proceeds from the book go to Haysville Community Library Foundation.


History of the Haysville Public Schools 1876-2006

History of the Haysville Public Schools 1876-2006 by Wayne Holt. "As a member of the professional staff of the Haysville Public Schools from 1957-1997 and a member of the Board of Education from 1999-2005, I have witnessed much of the history of the district." Proceeds from the book go to Haysville Community Library Foundation.


The Descendants of Nicholas Cain 1736-1986

"The Descendants of Nicolas Cain" 1736-1986 by Wayne R. Cain and Shirley J. Evans. "Sometime in the middle 1960's, and having reached the half century mark, I decided that it was time to dispose of a portion of my business and think about slowing down. However, having led a busy and interesting life, I found that it was not as easy as it sounds. Therefore, one day during an idle examination of a family tree book of my wife's family, I became curious enough about my own lineage to question my mother concerning her knowledge of the Cain history." Proceeds from the book go to the Haysville Community Library Genealogy Department.
