Around Hazleton

Mar 2005
Paperback

Book Description
Once called the jewel of Pennsylvanias middle anthracite coal fields, Hazleton grew up on a solid foundation of black diamonds and prospered in the coal industry. The city quickly became the financial, industrial, shopping, transportation, and entertainment center of the region. Mining gave rise to other businesses, many established to supply machinery to the numerous collieries. Silk mills and garment factories provided work to scores of people. By the close of World War II, the days of coal mining as a major industry were numbered. Slowly, the towering coal breakers fell silent, their machinery grinding to a halt. Not a single example remains standing today. Around Hazleton is an informative trip through this city and nearby towns.

Review
"The text of Football in Baltimore is lively, sportswriter recall plus interviews; strong on names and scores." -- James H. Bready, Baltimore Sun

Review
"It was July 1955 when I reported to the Baltimore Colts training camp for my first year in professional football. There was no way I could know what the coming years were going to bring. None of us -- players, coaches, owner Carroll Rosenbloom, the people of Baltimore and Maryland -- none of us realized we were all going to experience a rare and unforgettable era, and we were going to experience it together." -- from the Foreword by Raymond Berry
