Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A teacher of English and English History at the Friends School in Baltimore, Letitia Stockett was inspired to write her not too serious history of the city when a friend told her that nothing much had been done in the way of a history of Baltimore since J. Thomas Scharf's 1874 The Chronicles of Baltimore. Rising to the challenge, she spent all of her spare time on the book, telling friends and family who were curious merely that she "had work to do". Baltimore: A Not Too Serious History was the result, a charming and anecdote-filled account of the city's history that is as fresh today as it was when first published in 1928.
