As We See Ourselves
Since 1996 Lot's Wife has published twenty-three books. Church history is one of our specialties. Included in the list of church histories that we have researched, written, designed, and had printed are those for two Episcopal, two Presbyterian, one Lutheran, and one Associated Reformed Presbyterian congregations in the Shenandoah Valley. We have also produced a massive revised and updated edition of an important history for another valley Lutheran congregation. Other organizations for which we have researched and written histories include a library and a hospital. In connection with the preceding, we also supervise graduate and advanced undergraduate history research interns regularly for institutions of higher education.
We have researched, written, and published a guidebook, a biography, a book of historic biographical sketches, and a landholding book and map for a prominent historic church museum in Tidewater Virginia. We take special pride in the handsome full-color, coffee-table size history of cattle in Virginia researched and written for the beef cattle and dairy foundations, Virginia’s Cattle Story: The First Four Centuries.
In addition to work we have researched and written ourselves, we have edited, designed, and published memoirs and autobiographies by several local authors as well as histories of a Rockingham County community, of Staunton people and places, and of a Blacksburg sports organization for their authors. Occasionally we prepare indexes for authors publishing elsewhere.
Whether it is editing, historical research, history museum interpretation and publications consulting, orientation and exhibit script research and writing, or some other undertaking, we welcome the opportunity to discuss your project with you.
