The teachers have asked me to pass along their positive reviews and their request to secure a class set of 30 books. ––Erica Guadalupe, Secondary Literacy Coordinator, McKeesport Area School District
The book was given to our Board members to be a constant reminder of how important the history of the great city of Pittsburgh is and the many experiences enjoyed. The book is truly an inspiration to maintain this history and to remain committed to preserving it. ––Sandra Pack, President, Allegheny Historic Preservation Society, Inc.
