The selection of Mr. Fleming to prepare this history of Pittsburgh, and the region round about, was most fortunate for the city. He was not only a sturdy grubber after facts but had the ability to dress them up in pleasing style and set them in graceful order. This book is valuable not only as a narrative of historic events, but as a compendium of facts relating to men and matters, events and happenings pertaining to the triumphant growth of Pittsburgh, its institutions, and its fame. It is as encyclopedic as entertaining and facilitates the finding of whatsoever data that may be desired. It will be very hard to find another book on the history of Pittsburgh that is as detailed as Mr. Fleming's. This is volume one out of two.
