It’s been a big year for the Camp­bells in print. Not only was the defin­i­tive Robert Camp­bell repub­lished with loads of new infor­ma­tion and images, but our home is also being fea­tured in the hot-off-the-press Deli­cious Christ­mas Dec­o­ra­tions.

From Moun­tain Man to Mil­lion­aire: The Bold and Dash­ing Life of Robert Camp­bell ($24.95) by Dr. William R. Nester is the sec­ond edi­tion of the book that has been almost entire­ly rewrit­ten due to the dis­cov­ery of a cache of five hun­dred new doc­u­ments since the 1999 edi­tion. This new pub­li­ca­tion will give the read­er a greater insight into the life and times of Robert Camp­bell and his influ­ence in St. Louis and through­out Mis­souri. The book also fea­tures all-new illustrations.

Deli­cious Christ­mas Dec­o­ra­tions at His­toric Hous­es and Your Home ($19.95) by Patri­cia Hart McMil­lan fea­tures CHM with beau­ti­ful col­or pho­tos of the Muse­um dur­ing the hol­i­days. Our din­ing room graces the cov­er, and it is a book to be trea­sured. It would make a love­ly addi­tion to any cof­fee table.

All books are avail­able in the Muse­um Store, or you can order by phone at 314/421‑0325. Remem­ber, if you’re a Muse­um mem­ber, you receive a 10% dis­count and all pur­chas­es are tax-free!
