A most interesting history,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Proper Bostonians (Paperback)
Cleveland Amory, best known for his writings for his love of animals, first wrote this most interesting view of the city of Boston. Boston is one of America's most well known cities, and Amory gives an insight into the fabric that makes up the social framework of the city. Gilded with facts that give the reader a chance to see how Boston thinks (such as tearing down the historical home of John Hancock when the taxes went unpaid), this book is fascinating because it is real. Truth is stranger than fiction, and Boston as presented here rings true. The main drawback to the book is that one wishes an update on the world of the Proper Bostonians was available.
