We will be hosting Richard Fleming, the author of the new book "Wetzel," on the afternoon of June 21st. Lewis Wetzel grew up near Wheeling in the late 1700s and roamed over the Northern Panhandle and Western Pennsylvania as a frontiersman. The book is historical fiction, however it is footnoted, and the author, a retired college professor, has done his research well. It should be an interesting presentation for anyone interested in the early history of the Upper Ohio Valley!
