A Spoonful of History

Can you identify this celebrated spoon (shown below) with historical significance to the Louisaina Purchase and La Charrette?

Your first clue may be found at this link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Louis_Exposition

The second clue involves the author of La Charrette. Have you made all the linkages yet?

For the complete story proceed to the title link above. There you'll discover how historical spoons celebrate their 100th birthday!

La Charrette Available as e-book, too

Both paperback and e-book alternatives are available for La Charrette: A History of the Village Gateway to the American Frontier Visited by Lewis and Clark * Daniel Boone * Zebulon Pike to customers. The title link takes you directly to the publishers bookstore. Other outlets also offer both options.

I wanted the La Charrette story to be available to as many potential readers as possible. Help yourself!
