The Ohio River
First Published in 1906 by the noted historian Archer Butler Hulbert, this excellent work chronicles the events that occurred from the time of Celeron’s Expedition through the years of early settlement when canoes and flatboats were the main mode of transportation. Next came the steamboat era when Sternwheelers and Sidewheelers plied up and down the great Ohio River from Pittsburgh to the Mississippi.
This book is not your average “dry” history book. It is filled with exciting stories and firsthand accounts of the people who lived and participated in these events that made the Ohio River a true Course of Empire.
