Join current NUGGET editor/publisher Wayne Knuckles as he discusses Lumpkin County Legend W. B. Townsend . In the early 1900's W. B. Townsend was the legendary editor of a tiny Georgia mountain newspaper, THE DAHLONEGA NUGGET. Using a hand-cranked press he created a 4-page weekly paper filled with news, advertisements and Townsend's witty, bawdy, funny and often cantankerous editorial columns. Those columns were syndicated in major papers across the country, attracting a loyal readership for Townsend's wise, rascally, small-town views. OBSERVATIONS FROM A PEAK IN LUMPKIN COUNTY is a collection of his best writing, with commentary by a 1930's Atlanta newspaper reporter, A.F. Dean, who compiled the excerpts. With editing by New York Times bestselling novelist Deborah Smith and a foreword bycurrent NUGGET editor/publisher Wayne Knuckles .
