The Potomac. Illustrated by Mitchell Jamieson.
by [Rivers of America] Gutheim, Frederick.
A Fine tight copy in a Very Good price-clipped dust jacket with shallow chipping to the head of the spine.. This volume in the Rivers of America series 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.
