Adios : history of South Lima

Image of item
Book
South Lima, New York, is one of those communities that few have heard of, and fewer still have traveled to, but how fortunate are we to be among those who have called it home. South Lima’s isolation may have preserved it from a world that is seemingly more maladjusted with each passing day. Best known for nearly one hundred and fifty years of muck farming South Lima is home to many Bronze Stars and Purple Hearts and one eternal flame. Its ground has rumbled to the LA&L, its crops picked by hand and dusted by air. Its grandparents taught “reading, riting, and rithmetic” in one room, then two. It’s neighbors teaching us about Noah’s Ark, Mary, and Joseph and about their baby boy who changed the world. It’s runner sleds, distant ponds, and dogs. It’s penny candy, apple cider, and sugar donuts, and it’s Ethel’s. Adios-History of South Lima introduces the reader to many unknown facts of South Lima, from the Seneca to its founding and the mystery of ‘The Bucket of Blood.’ Rob Thompson’s well researched compilation and profound use of rich imagery delivers readers back to a far simpler time when time itself was more unconditional.
