The future of the valley of the upper Allegheny River was predetermined in the 1930s with talks of flood control. As time drew nearer for construction of Kinzua Dam, even the last protesters conceded their world was doomed. It was not the end of the world, but it was the end of their world, their way of life-for how can you infuse hope into the spirit of man when all is ordained to be taken from him?To those who intimately knew these times, perhaps the valleys are better known by what is gone than by what remains today. True, the past cannot be captured, but we may forever ponder the times lost-villages abandoned; farms without green fields; trees cleared and burned, as the fires set by the Corps rid the valleys and remote hamlets of the residue of human life.For centuries the Allegheny hills acted as stewards guarding, perhaps falsely, the destiny of the inhabitants. Kinzua Dam held back the Allegheny River as everyone and everything previously known vanished beneath it. As some witnessed the extinction of a valley, others marveled at the engineering of a great dam-for as Cornplanter discerned-upon the eternal scroll, time writes the passing.

The book covers a lot of history of the area I live in some I had heard other I never hard, but overall it felt like the information was well researched. This was the first book I've read on the subject though, so I don't have other material to compare with other then bits and pieces of local lore surrounding the building of the Kinzua Dam. I loved that the author explained the treaty between the Seneca Nation and the United States because that was a huge reason the dam was so controversial. Not to mention several towns were destroyed and the people relocated because of the dam. I gave the book 4 stars simply because I don't have a comparison for it and felt like I needed to leave room in case I find something better, but this book is one I feel offers a great starting point for those interested in the history of the area effected by the Kinzua Dam

I wish this had more maps, as the town boundaries have changed over time. It is a great reference for my family genealogy.

The subject matter of this book was of particular interest to me since our family owns a hunting camp in the area near the Kinzua reservoir and the Alleghany National Forest. There was a good deal of interesting history but I found the writing to be somewhat disjointed and repetative. Recommended only for those wishing to learn more of their local history.
