    The University and the City: A Centennial View of the University of Chicago (), ed. by Daniel Meyer (illustrated HTML at Chicago) Filed under: Chicago (Ill.) -- History -- Fiction. Hardscrabble, Or, The Fall of Chicago: A Tale of Indian Warfare (New York: R.M. de Witt, ca. ), by Major Richardson (multiple formats at ).   The book includes colorful details about York's hardscrabble childhood in Depression-era Chicago, his rise to radio, Broadway, movie and television fame alongside actors such as Spencer Tracy, Gene Kelly, Gary Cooper and Elizabeth Montgomery, and his post-Bewitched efforts to regain his health and restart his career.

    The Dearly Beloved is a nuanced and fascinating character study - an engrossing, graceful novel about the inner struggles and differences of 4 characters as they try to make a life and create families. James and Charles are both Presbyterian ministers so God is involved/5. Even before the canal construction was begun, Hardscrabble became the site of a quarry, which was opened in in order to cut stone needed to improve Chicago harbor. And because of the relentless pounding of Lake Michigan waters, the harbor improvement project dragged on for many years. Later the stone quarry became known as Stearns' Quarry.

    How, then, can he fall in love with Lily after she tells him with certainty that she will never believe in God? James, the youngest son in a hardscrabble Chicago family, spent much of his youth angry at his alcoholic father and avoiding his anxious mother. Nan grew up in Mississippi, the devout and beloved daughter of a minister and a debutante. Two farm chores in the late fall and winter called for festivities–cane grinding and hog-killing. Most farmers cultivated a small plot of sugar cane to make syrup for their families’ use. They fed stalks into a metal grinder mounted on posts and driven by a mule walking in endless circles.
