The Cuyahoga.
by [Rivers of America Series] Ellis, William D.

Publisher Information:
Holt, Rinehart & Winston , New York: 1966.

A Near Fine copy (in a reversed binding) in a Very Good plus price-clipped dust jacket with some light edge wear. This volume in the Rivers of America series by William Donohue Ellis starts its view of the Cuyahoga River at the end of the last ice age, includes the time when it was the far western boundary of the new United States,and is a reminder of how industrial fortunes were made in the heartland of the U.S. The research is incomparable and includes historical surprises even for those who have lived near the banks of the Cuyahoga for decades. You get a view of a living river that supported First Nations and provided a link, via the Ohio & Erie Canal, between the Great Lakes and the Gulf of Mexico. Familiar names like Rockefeller, Edison and Goodrich are there, with hundreds of others whose names now mark maps in Ohio.
