Images of America: Fairmount

Cathy's book, Images of America: Fairmount, is an historic photo book about Fairmount, Indiana, the town where film icon James Dean was raised. The Fairmount Historical Museum assisted with the book, which has numerous photos of Dean sprinkled throughout, some of them never-before published. James Dean's relatives kindly contributed to the book and opened up their personal scrapbooks to the project. Many townspeople who knew Dean are quoted in the book, which also has many stories about townspeople that are similar to those of quite a few Midwestern towns that were influenced by the Gas Boom era.
