About this Item

Limited to 1,000 copies, 8vo, pp. 211; frontispiece portrait, plates; original green cloth-backed buckram, printed paper spine label; binding faded with light edge wear, spine label a bit rubbed, but overall, a very good copy. The plan of the trip was "to leave Chicago by the Drainage Canal, float down to the Illinois River, then down it to the Mississippi, by it to New Orleans, then to strike off through the bayous or canals into the watery wastes of the southwest, and spend there the time until the approach of the Carnival called us back to the southern metropolis." The book includes much practical information which Waugh found lacking in the little literature he could find on houseboating before his trip. Bookseller Inventory # 28642
