IN AND AROUND OLD DEFIANCE by Louis A. Simonis is a collection of 120 pictures with commentary showing some of the rich history of the Defiance, Ohio area.


Back by popular demand, the author, in collaboration with History Studios, is now set to release the fourth printing of his popular 1984 book about Defiance and the surrounding area.  Mr. Simonis started a collection of pictures with his mother's box camera during the 1940s.  He went on to locate others for this collection as well as his award winning book, "Maumee River 1835".  With an updated cover and the inclusion of Mr. Simonis' fine illustrations, you won't want to miss your chance to add this classic to your Defiance history collection.
