Today we are making final corrections to our Introduction and Overview sections and to the Glacier Country chapter of the book – the first three sections, 150 pages, to be completed.
We are also making our preliminary corrections and changes today to the Russell Country, Missouri River Country and Gold West Country chapters – 205 more pages. Final corrections for these chapters will be done by the end of the coming week.
Yellowstone Country – approximately 70 pages – is nearly built so we’ll be preliminarily proofing that early next week. Custer Country – about 55 pages – will be handed off to our designers in two days. That section should be built and ready for initial proofing at the end of next week.
We’re now looking at a press start date of Sept. 26 with up to three weeks in press-proofing, printing and bindery. If we can maintain this hectic pace, books could be in hand for distribution as early as Oct. 10 but more likely Oct. 17.
As the Grateful Dead surmised, “What a long, strange trip it’s been…” But one with a near future happy ending!
