More About The Story of Bucks County by Ray O'Brien
 
 
 
Overview

Bucks, just Bucks please Bucks County, Pennsylvania is a high profile area with national name recogn ition. It lies at the heart of the great northeastern Megalopolis between New York City, Princeton, and Philadelphia. It is a microcosm of what has become the American dream. Paradise, nightmare, or something other -- read, and then decide. The Story of Bucks County is richly embellished with a wealth of original materials including more than 70 sketches, photographs, maps and satellite images, and data tables. In a lively and often humorous fashion, it weaves together European and Anerican folklore, earth history and geography, the literary and theatrical world of New York and New Hope, the lure and impact of 1950's paperback sleaze, and the creation and life of the prototypical American suburb -- Levittown. All this, and more, is seasoned with a touch (just a touch) of the supernatural and Satanical. This is a fresh and most unique portrait of changing times and places, of heroes and villains, from the Peaceable Kingdom of the Pennsylvania Quakers to the twenty-first century. Across a timeline that takes readers from farms and barns to the prospects and problems of the modern world, this is a story that has never before been told in quite the same way.
