What My Readers Say
The excellently researched Prohibition Pittsburgh by Richard Gazarik shines a bright and entertaining light on the boozy secret past on my hometown’s role during one of the most controversial eras in American history.
This is a great book on local history, well-researched and full of colorful characters and stories.Prohibition Pittsburgh
Local newspaper reporter Gazarik nonetheless writes a lively narrative, doing an especially good job of dealing with Sellins murder in 1919. The authors own family story provides tantalizing clues about this history.Black Valley: The Life and Death of Fannie Sellins
