Description


Bands of Iroquois, the ill-fated General Braddock and Gilded Age tycoons have all roamed Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains. The rough peaks and dense woods of the Alleghenies were the nation's first barrier to westward expansion. From frontier skirmishes and daring escapes along the Underground Railroad to the triumphs and tragedies of the Industrial Revolution, local journalist Dave Hurst explores the fascinating history and distinctive culture of the region. He regales readers with tales of fly-fishing, bold outdoorsmen, the legend of Johnny Appleseed and the origins of the banana split to capture the essence of Pennsylvania's Allegheny Mountains.
