The title is politically incorrect but it is story of the assimilation of immigrants into the community of Greenfield over several centuries. A fascinating read and very colorful.

A history of Pittsburgh, one of America's great cities, centered on the neighborhood of Greenfield. Chock full of colorful characters, rich history and vivid memories, told in the words of people who lived it. Lots of fun sidebar facts as well.
