Maps the passions of one American town and the conflicts and harmonies that united and divide the townspeople. This is an intimate account of six years in the life of Hamilton, Ohio, whose first recorded event was a hanging. It was virtually destroyed by a flood in 1913, corrupted by Prohibition, devastated by the Depression, diminished by the flight of its industry. Nevertheless it survives and perseveres, and so do its unremarkable yet remarkable townspeople, their town much changed on the surface, yet reserving its past to an extraordinary degree.

(Key Words: Hamilton, Ohio, United States, Hometowns, Peter Davis, Social Life, Sociology).
