"The title of this book, 'The Good Town Does Well,' was taken from the unofficial motto of Rock Hill, South Carolina, and was used by city boosters for more than half a century. The first comprehensive history of Rock Hill written in half a century, 'The Good Town' is much more than an account of boosterism at its best." -- from Jacket Flap
