First to dispel any confusion, the "Volume 3" is the result of a re-branding of a series of results-oriented books Crowbar Press is doing. The initial intent was to do a series of similar books called "Wrestling's Greatest Cities", but the first book was only for Madison Square Garden (Vol 1), the second book was for Nashville (Vol 2) and the third book (this one) was going to be for the whole state of Alabama. When I pointed out that the "cities" series was comprised of 1 city, 1 venue and 1 state, the concept was re-thought and the venues title was born. So if the MSG and Nashville books see a second printing, they may be re-titled to fit the series.
Anyway, to quote the listing at CrowbarPress.com:
This comprehensive work covers the matches in the ring and the events that took place behind the scenes in Alabama from 1931 through 1935. Travel down Alabama highways and enjoy the memories of more than 2,000 wrestling shows, 4,000 matches, and more than 550 illustrations and images — program covers, newspaper headlines and articles, advertisements, and memorabilia — all of which accompany the stories and information to enhance the sensation of traveling back in time. This is yet another incredible work from Crowbar Press that you will refer to time and time again.The book actually starts as far back as 1905, as I included a brief account of the state of wrestling in Alabama prior to 1931, as a preface to what was to come later. But the main focus was in the 1931-1935 period. Now on to 1936-1940!
