In the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh, the fertility of Indiana County has provided its inhabitants for generations.
Starting with predated Native American Indians tribes, the county experienced a salt boom along the Conemaugh River, mined a legacy of bituminous coal production, and earned the title of the "Christmas Tree Capitol of the World".
ABOUT THE AUTHOR(S)
Spencer Sadler is a history buff, and Mike Rieg is a history teacher for the Indiana Area Public Schools. A local freelance writer for local papers with two previous books, Sadler called on the help of one of his former teachers who sparked his interests in bygone eras, Rieg, to assist with the immense amount of legwork necessary for this project, finding old photos, taking new photos, and sifting through volumes of historical materials.
