Throughout a long career as one of the most distinguished journalists in the state, he has captured the Commonwealth's unique spirit—in all its glory and all its eccentricity. Pennsylvania Stories—Well Told pulls together the best of his best stories, each impeccably researched and beautifully written....I heartily recommend this book."
