"Big Town, Little City" was a 22-part series that ran in the Rockford Register Star in 1999. The series, written by Rock River Valley journalist Pat Cunningham, provided an anecdotal overview of the community's challenges and successes throughout the 20th century. The series was expanded for this hardcover volume, which includes text and photos that did not appear in the newspaper.
