This is the story of Perpetua, a young Roman woman living in the city of Carthage in North Africa early in the 3rd century A.D. Perpetua came from a noble Roman family, was a wife and mother of a young child and was secretly a Christian at a time when they were being widely persecuted. When the Roman governor ordered the arrest of Christians - mostly lower-caste servants and others - Perpetua publically declared her faith. Despite her nobleman father's pleas to save herself, she insisted on being treated like any other believer. After a long imprisonment and trial, Perpetua died as a martyr in the Roman Colosseum, along with thousands of others. She left behind her husband and small baby, but was later canonized as St. Perpetua for her courage.The film is not only a story of enduring faith, courage and sacrifice, but also a universal tale of love and family.

This is not a history book nor is it a book of historical photos. However, as the years pass, it will become history. As the photographer and author of this, the first in a series of books about the streets of Grants Pass, I feel the reason for such an undertaking needs to be explained, and that is to simply record what the buildings looked like in 2014. At the end of the 19th Century, Grants Pass became a small city. It existed in name from 1864 when it got its first post office. Therefore, this book of streets, celebrates the 150 year of the name Grants Pass. The post office was in a private home and by no means indicated there was a town. Grants Pass was a community of wide spread farms with the nearest post office at Rock Point (Gold Hill area) 17 miles from what is now downtown Grants Pass. This is a picture book. There are few comments. It just shows how North 6th Street in Grants Pass, Oregon looked in 2014.
