During his fifty year career, photographer Jacob Hicks produced a treasure trove of historical images of the frontier days in Clay County.  This book showcases 400 of those images which were captured by Hicks on glass plate negatives.  All of these photos are more than 100 years old.  Some go as far back as the early 1860s.  This remarkable collection ranks among the most important and most interesting holdings at the Clay County Museum.  Biographical sketches describing the life and times of Jacob Hicks, as well as fifty other noted citizens from those early days in Clay County are included.
