Howard Gieringer comes from a family of entrepreneurs, beginning with his German-immigrant grandfather, his father and he continued to be part of the business community that served Miamitown, Ohio, located on the banks of the Great Miami River. His reminiscences about the businesses, the people, and the historic events of this small village on the West side of Cincinnati are both informative and entertaining. The location of this town offered opportunities for fishing and gold—both pastimes that ultimately led to many adventures around the globe, well up into his later years. The map of Miamitown, with a key to the various places mentioned in the book, allows the reader to feel as though he is right in the middle of each story.

Two hundred years after its founding, West Union retains two historic distinctions: it was the westernmost major Shaker village in the country and the Shaker community most directly affected by the War of 1812.
