A New Regional History of the Niagara Link
Author: John W. Percy
This book explains how Buffalo went from a little hamlet of a few scattered cabins to the eigth largest city in the U.S. by the dawn of the 20th century. It tells the story of that exciting growth, then examines the 20th Century factors that caused the region to tumble from prosperity to hard times, and concludes with an examination of factors that utilize our geographic advantages to integrate the Western New York and Canadian economics and could ultimately restore great prosperity to our region in the 21st Century.
There is no comparable work in print. This major opus of esteemed historian John Percy has been in process for almost two decades. The influence of geography on the history and development of the region is a persistent theme and a steady beacon in Percy’s amply illustrated text.
This is an oversize softcover volume of 370 pages.
