By James B. Lane. At once scholarly and colorful, this is an outgrowth of urban historian James B. Lane’s popular weekly columns for the Gary Post-Tribune. Lane uses the oral testimony of the people of Gary to tell a fascinating story about Gary’s industrialization by U.S. Steel Corporation. There are episodes of personal tragedy and heroism here, of frustrated dreams and tarnished reputations, and of challenges met and obstacles overcome. Publication Date: 1978| Binding: Hard Cover; 6” x 9” x 1”| Condition: Good; non-circulating library edition, with library ID markings, with dust cover. | Pages: 339
