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

"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.""
