Work is currently under way on the Echo Press' fifth edition of The Churches of Douglas County. We typically come out with an updated version of this publication every three years, and I have been fortunate enough to work on all five of them.


I love working on this piece because churches intrigue me - especially historic ones, and Douglas County is blessed with many of these treasures.
