The Potomac by Frederick Albert Gutheim ( Book )
5 editions published between 1949 and 1986 in English and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Potomac", one of the most celebrated volumes in the Rivers of America series. Frederick Gutheim follows the Potomac from its source in West Virginia to the Chesapeake Bay. Along the way, he brings to life the planters and presidents, frontiersmen and industrialists who have shaped the region's history. From Captain John Smith's 1609 expedition upriver to John Adam's doubting view of the still undeveloped federal city, from the insurrection at Harper's Ferry to the rapid transformation of twentieth-century Washington into a living- and at times unruly- metropolis, "The Potomac" traces the life of a great river and of the people who have lived along its banks

4 editions published between 1949 and 1998 in English and held by 1,250 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally part of the Rivers of America Series, "The Ohio" traces the river from its headwaters in Pittsburgh to the point it empties into the Mississippi, nearly a thousand miles and five states later. The Ohio gives us a rare portrait of the frontier era of this region, from backwoods entertainment to learning and the arts. From early exploration to land disputes, clashes with Native American inhabitants to the birth of steamboat travel, the Ohio River comes alive through the retelling of the incidents and anecdotes that shaped its history of what the French called "the beautiful river."

The St. Lawrence by Henry Beston ( Book )
4 editions published between 1942 and 1951 in English and held by 1,009 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Overview: Vast watercourse, boundary, and the gateway to North America-the St. Lawrence River has been an integral player in the formation of Canada as we know it today. But as writer and naturalist Henry Beston reminds us, this great passageway carries much more than historical significance to the wildlife of its waters and banks. Travelling along the river more than 70 years ago, Beston expertly observed its natural environment as he researched the greatest survey of the land and its people that had yet been written. Illustrated with sketches from the Group of Seven's A.Y. Jackson, The St. Lawrence quickly became one of the most beloved titles in the Rivers of America series when it was first published in 1942. The Wynford edition restores to print this classic work of non-fiction, with a new introduction by Beston's biographer, Daniel Payne, to situate the book within its historical context for the modern reader
