The third edition of The Ohio Almanac may be the most important publishing event in Ohio since the second edition. Long regarded as the mandatory compilation of all things Ohio, the latest edition has not only collected the most recent census references, it has added more than a hundred pages of new material. No mere collection of loose facts, the third edition is fuller, deeper, livelier, and more useful. It has furthered its hybrid definition as both almanac and encyclopedia--new biographies, charts, lists, single-page features, explanatory asides, and hundreds of links and capsule web reviews of Ohio's handiest sites. And it has added a host of new contributors--some of Ohio's best writers, journalists, historians, librarians, and academics. Gathered in one indispensable volume is the best and most creative assessment of how Ohio works. It is at once compendium, history, lesson-planner, and doorstop. Mandatory as reference, unforgettable as entertainment, it provides the freshest, most original look at Ohio since Henry Howe did it on horseback over a century and a half ago.
