I needed to do research on Amherst, NY and this was the go to book. Great photos and descriptions. Done very well and packs a ton of information into a small book. I have lived in Western New York my entire life and learned a lot from this book! Highly recommended for those interested in Western New York and wanting to know more about the area.
