Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Uncover the history of the United States by traveling its major rivers—from the time before Europeans arrived, to the nineteenth century. Indians, explorers, and settlers traversed our rivers for thousands of years—in canoes, rafts, flatboats, and steamboats. They settled the land by following these rivers westward, expanding the country. Using photographs, paintings, prints, and original maps, river guides Peter and Connie Roop lead readers on exciting rides on and over, down and around the Hudson, the Ohio, the Mississippi, the Missouri, the Rio Grande, the Colorado, and Columbia rivers.
