Mike Blackstone is a great-grandson of Harry Arthur Gant. The publishing of Gant's memoir, I Saw Them Ride Away, was one of the goals of his establishment of Castle Knob Publishing.
Little did he know how that straightforward-seeming project would consume so much of his life. He had so much fun, preparing the memoir for publication and following up on people he met along the way, that he wrote The Making of "I Saw Them Ride Away". He describes the depth and breadth of sources and techniques available on the Internet for researching the most arcane information imaginable, and a great many surprises.
