Alison Kahn and Peggy Fox

PatapscoFolklorist and writer Alison Kahn and photographer Peggy Fox have collaborated to produce a collection of oral history narratives, essays, and photographs that profile the lives of longtime residents of five historic Patapsco Valley villages: Ellicott City, Oella, Elkridge, Relay, and Daniels. The love of place shines through in this volume, which chronicles experiences that span nearly a century. An ode to the valley's vanishing communities, it reveals the connections between people and place and culture in the face of rapid change.
