About this title


Capt. Theodore Bartley, owner of three Lake Champlain canal boats, kept a fascinating journal of his life from 1861 to 1889 on the canals and waterways of the Northeast. His travels included voyages north to Ottawa, west to Buffalo, and south to Philadelphia. His journal entries range from dramatic tales of near sinkings during gales on Lake Champlain to descriptions of the lives of ordinary people during the late 19th century. Bartley witnessed history in the making, and his journals provide an intimate portrait of the life of a canal boat family crisscrossing America during a period of extraordinary change.

About the Author:

Bartley's journals, comprising 1500 pages, were transcribed by great grand-daughter-in-law Barbara B. Bartley. They were then edited and annotated by Russell P. Bellico PhD., author of three important Champlain Valley histories. The preface and postscript are by Arthur B. Cohen, Director of the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum, who also directed the construction of a full-scale working replica of an 1862 canal schooner launched at Burlington, VT, on July 3, 2004.
