By David C. Greer

Not simply a local history about the lawyers and judges who pursued their profession in Dayton, Ohio, Sluff of History's Boot Soles is a study of particulars in search of universals. This book chronicles the city's 200-year sweep of history against the background of the country's three revolutions during that period. Distinct personalities come to life through explorations of their characters and the memorable events that marked their experience.
This 200-year tapestry of people and events in a notable Midwestern Big Town is designed--like most—to be read by the traditional reader who starts at the upper-left corner of page one and progresses assiduously to the lower-right corner of the last page. It is also a compendium of stories, sketches, and facts with many entrances and exits for readers with particular agendas or curiosities. For students of local or national history, the interspersed chronologies can be read independently from the text. For lovers of anecdotes and personalities, the text can be read independently from the chronologies. For those in search of the foot and fingerprints of individuals or law firms, an index provides convenient keys. For those with a fascination for specific subjects, an indexed guided tour will serve as a map.
