New MSL Book
Alvin Rosenbaum will be speaking at FLPL about his new book The Muscle Shoals: First Frontier of These United States
The Muscle Shoals is an in-depth study of a unique place in the wilds of American history. A tumbling stretch of rough water on the Tennessee River first populated by the Cherokee and Chickasaw people, the Muscle Shoals would become a magnet for settlement and trade—as well as the object of schemes and dreams, speculation, plans, and politics.
Beginning some 50 years before Alabama’s statehood, author Alvin Rosenbaum reveals the Muscle Shoals to be America’s true first frontier.
Alvin Rosenbaum is a Muscle Shoals native and a regional planner. He has worked as an American and international consultant for strategic planning, public-private partnerships, and other collaborative approaches to interpreting regional landscapes for tourism, economic development, and poverty alleviation. The Muscle Shoals: First Frontier of These United States is the author’s ninth book.
