Interesting history of Chicago

Great read!

by Nelly4 on Jun 16, 2011

As a history and psychology teacher, this was the best of both worlds. Very easy to get into, couldn't put it down, wonderful details, absolutely absorbing. I really liked the pace and how each chapter switched so you were always wanting more details! This one's a keeper and I'm sure I'll reference ... More

Which of his books is your favorite?

Loved, loved, loved this book. Also read the one about the dust storms and the one about Galveston. This one is by far my favorite.
