Book News
The aerial photos of Terry Evans reveal a Chicago seldom seen, giving a larger view than a sidewalk can, and capturing unexpected beauty in shadows, snow, sand, and concrete. Charles Wheelan (public policy, U. of Chicago) provides an engaging historical narrative to the photos, which are grouped thematically: commerce, steel mills, infrastructure, city neighborhoods, suburbs, and farming, among other subjects.
