Synopsis: The Odyssey of the Blue Swan is a wonderful and often humorous story about building the long canal system that we know of which began at Lake Erie in New York, continued in Ohio and Indiana. The story takes place in the area of Marysville, Ohio. Some of the characters are based on Mr. Carder's Current family connection. We learn about the characters that traveled the canal, as well as the characters of the community of New Bremen. Alwyn Carder has caught the very essence and soul of the canal period in the United States.
