Rust Belt Boy: Stories of an American Childhood (Paperback)
In Stock, Click Title for Location
Paul Hertneky is one of millions of baby boomers who fled the industrial north upon fulfilling his parents' dreams of a college education. He returns to his roots in Ambridge, Pennsylvania in this collection of stories specific to one legendary riverfront plateau and one boy's journey, but emblematic of immigrant life and blue-collar aspirations during the heyday of American industry and its crash, foreshadowing one of the largest internal migrations in U.S. history.
