Join award-winning author John David Myles as he retraces the steps of artist Walter H. Kiser on his journey across Kentucky and the river communities of Southern Indiana in the 1930s and early 1940s. Celebrate the survival of many of the 404 landmarks Kiser drew, mourn the passing of others, and learn of their histories over the past three quarters of a century. Above all, revel in the drawings of this largely forgotten artist whose works are in the collections of the Speed Art Museum, the Filson Historical Society, and the Indiana Historical Society.

John David Myles is an attorney, former circuit judge, and preservationist. He has written and lectured on architecture for The Filson Historical Society in his native Kentucky and prepared a number of historical and architectural reports on southern hunting plantations for Plantation Services, Inc., in Charleston, South Carolina. Myles has also consulted on numerous restoration and renovation projects. He is the author of  Historic Architecture of Shelby County, Kentucky, 1792-1915 and Beaumont Inn: Two Centuries of Service.
