Praise for Our Regional Publishing Program

Down the Susquehanna to the Chesapeake is doubly welcome, for its own considerable virtues and for filling in so many of the blanks in our knowledge of a river that plays a far larger role in this part of the country than most of us realize. . . . Brubaker’s meticulous and loving description of the river should do much to heighten our appreciation of this secret treasure in the heart of our part of the world. It has been handsomely published by Penn State Press as a ‘Keystone Book,’ a series ‘intended to serve the citizens of Pennsylvania by educating them and others, in an entertaining way, about aspects of the history, culture, society, and environment of the state as part of the Middle Atlantic region.’ That, for my money, is university-press publishing at its absolute best.”

—Jonathan Yardley, The Washington Post Book World

“I have the highest regard for the work of Penn State Press in promoting state and local history and in setting high standards with publications that are both scholarly and accessible to a general audience.”

—Brent D. Glass, Director, National Museum of American History, Smithsonian Institution
