Columbus, Ohio: A Personal Geography

Columbus, Ohio: A Personal Geography

by Henry L. Hunker

Editorial Reviews

Columbus, Ohio: A Personal Geography is Henry Hunker's account of post-World War II Columbus from his perspective as a professional geographer and longtime resident of this Ohio city. Personal and anecdotal, Columbus, Ohio spans the past fifty years when the city expanded to become the largest municipality in the state. Hunker includes itineraries for two tours (one in 1956, the other in 1999) and uses them to compare the city then and now. The informative and engaging text is enhanced with eighteen photographs, and four maps of the metropolitan area. Columbus, Ohio provides the reader with fascinating and thought-provoking view of the physical, economic, industrial, and cultural life of Columbus. This outstanding presentation could well serve as a template for historical surveys of other significant and influential American communities.
