The story of Newark's Ironbound district is told with all the humanity and dynamism of the neighborhood itself - the shifting populations; the political intrigues; the fortunes and follies; the saints, sinners, and ordinary joes. It's a story of struggle and aspiration, of social change and economic upheaval, and, perhaps most important, of an urban community shaped by industrialization and its aftermath.
"The Iron-Bound Coast" is a New Zealand publishing gem, discovered by Bob Harvey while researching the history of Aucklands spectacular west coast. Prepared from the late Wally Badhams manuscripts, the book records the early years of Karekare and neighbouring farming and logging settlements, at a time when car and air travel were starting to end the isolation of these stunning locations. Badham spins captivating yarns about the people and events of the first half of the twentieth century; with over 200 photos, many never-before published, this is a book to read and admire.
Iron Bound is a gritty, authentic account of street gangs and life in the margins of Newark, New Jersey's Ironbound district at the start of the 60's.

This edition of Ironbound comes complete with a flexi-disc record of music written and recorded by Leach and his Iron Bound band, the Newark Wanderers.
