Product Overview

Nineteenth-century American travel literature provides fascinating glimpses into the lives of ordinary people and into the history of the nation''s settlement. Reuben Gold Thwaites''s Afloat on the Ohio is a fine example of the genre, rich in Ohio River personalities, legends, and history as seen through Thwaites''s eyes. His six-week journey by skiff covered a thousand miles from Redstone, Pennsylvania, to Cairo, Illinois, where the Ohio River meets the Mississippi. Thwaites''s voyage echoes those taken by early explorers, pioneers, and settlers who opened up the West through river travel from the East.


This edition is a reprinting of the original 1897 edition.
