Overview
Trails of Our Past, 2015, is an excellent collaboration of local history written by Dusty Williams. The contents of this book contain articles from the column, Trails of Our Past which appeared in the Van Alstyne Leader throughout 2015. Williams, in his informative, well rounded writing style, documented many topics in regards to local history. The writings are not only filled with colorful events, but they are backed by documentation which leaves little room for doubt in regards to their content. Williams is a 9th generation Grayson County resident and has ties to almost every little community or establishment throughout Grayson County. He is known for bringing attention to the lesser known histories that have somehow slipped through the cracks with the passing of time.
