My next book begins in Pittsburgh in 1914, the beginning of World War I, so I’ve been researching that world and came upon a remarkable documentary from the 1930s called “Smoke Makes Prosperity.” You can see it here. Not a pretty picture of life before the EPA.

“Absorbing and layered with rich historical details, in Under the Same Blue Sky, Schoenewaldt weaves a tender and at times, heartbreaking story about German-Americans during World War I. With remarkable compassion, the author skillfully portrays conflicted loyalties, the search for belonging, the cruelty of war, and the resilience of the human spirit.”—Ann Weisgarber, author of The Promise and The Personal History of Rachel Dupree
