Millhunks and Renegades: A Portrait of a Pittsburgh Neighborhood puts the story back in history. Through interviews with folks aged 12 to 96, Anita Kulina has pieced together what could easily be the story of many urban neighborhoods across the nation. Travel from the "old country" with Irish, Italian and Slovak immigrants to Greenfield, a small town now part of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Share their dreams and hopes as, over generations, they fight Indian raids and corporate tyranny. Join them as they ride the Schenley Park carousel and spend their hard-earned leisure time at prizefights and sulky races. Walk with these strong, proud individuals as they build schools, homes and lives as citizens of their adopted country, the United States of America.

"When I first picked up Millhunks and Renegades, I thought I would give the book a quick skim-through. Impossible. Every page was entertaining and enlightening." - Ron Kaintz, Retired Boilermaker

"I'm not usually interested in history books, but Millhunks and Renegades is different. The characters come alive - I care about what happens to them. I especially like the quotes scattered throughout the book, which lend a real honesty to the story." - Gina Preciado, Business Owner
