About this title:

Synopsis: Here is an immensely readable treasure-trove of Potomac River lore. It is a rich chronicling of the river's history, filled with sprightly and spicy memorabilia. It enlivens the significant events that have taken place on or near the mighty tidewater stream, and the activities of the men and women who have sailed its waters and trod its shores. And it recaptures inimitably the human foibles, frailties, and eccentricities that have touched life along its expanses. In important respects, the Potomac is renowned above all other rivers. Throughout its tidal reaches, the river's history is infused with the story of men and women active along its shores, some of whom rank among the most eminent of America's immortals. The Nation's capital stands at the river's tidal head; this paramountly distinguishes the Potomac River. The book reflects in detail the author's lifetime fascination with the Potomac. In undertaking to chronicle the river's past, he has focused major research on old records, diaries, and newspaper and archival resources. The volume's sweeping range recalls the river landings reaching out from the tidewater shores of yesterday, and it perceives the river life, today somewhat faded, yet to be imbued with aspects of the past. Grandeur, traditions, achievements, romances, and mischievous goings-on are all intertwined in the saga of this eternally beautiful estuary.
