Battling wolves and wilderness, the settlers of 1814 were the first in a long line of daring and ingenious souls to call Wadsworth home. With a wry but gentle humor, former mayor Caesar A. Carrino regales his readers with tales of these colorful characters, including politically biased embalmers and a swindling tabloid entrepreneur whose ghost still haunts the streets of Wadsworth. Carrino spins a beguiling yarn as he chronicles the history of his city, from the sometimes tragic fate of early pioneers to the coming of a new century with rail, steam, coal and automobile.
