Under the spray of the majestic Niagara Falls, the Iroquois built a nation, the War of 1812 raged and newly married couples honeymooned. In Remembering Niagara, local journalist Bob Kostoff has collected the best of his Nuggets of Niagara County History column, first published in the Niagara Falls Reporter, documenting the county's history from its early settlers through later engineering marvels. Among the stories are tales of the mysterious early mound builders and a kite-flying youngster who played a key role in the engineering of the first suspension bridge across the Niagara gorge.
