Reviews

"Chris Gillis s new book "Still Turning: A History of Aermotor Windmills" begins with the 'Mathematical Wheel.' Once the steel wheel of the Aermotor was designed and first used in 1888, its basic design has never changed in over 120 years. It like building a hammer, you can t make it any better. . . Gillis has used extensive historic and hard-to-find resources in his new book "Still Turning: A History of Aermotor Windmills." His style is easy to read and his facts are backed with original documents found in private collections. . . Chris has written a well-documented, easy-to-read history of America s largest windmill company. It is a 'must' reference for anyone who owns an Aermotor windmill." Coy F. Harris, executive director, American Wind Power Center--Coy F. Harris (06/05/2015)" Gillis has not only achieved his goal in capturing the majority of the Aermotor Windmill Company, but surpassed it by far. Without a doubt, this is one of the most thoroughly and thoughtfully researched company histories that I have ever had the pleasure to read. The author has used every possible resource to verify his findings and draw logical conclusions about those elements that were not documented. If every historian was so conscientious, there wouldn t be so many of 'history s mysteries' floating around today. Steven Rosengard, assistant curator, Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago--Steven Rosengard (06/10/2015)" "This is a great look on the history of the iconic Aermotor Windmill. Very good job by Mr. Gillis! He definitely did his homework!" -- Guy Morrow, president of the Aermotor Company "Gillis has not only achieved his goal in capturing the majority of the Aermotor Windmill Company, but surpassed it by far.
