Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Somewhere between the American Revolution and the Civil War there is a period of our country's history that is not as well known or recorded. The great era of the canals which for a number of years provided the most used transportation we knew is one of those periods. This book fills the gap by telling this story. From the great Erie Canal and all the songs that it inspired to the Blackstone Canal that ran from Providence to Worcester, Mass. making that inland city a "port city", the building of these great waterways is revealed. The growth of the railroads ended this colorful era but it need not be forgotten. Read this book and learn more about them.

There are three sorts of history books, mostly pics, good reads, and droning academic texts. This one takes an interesting topic and makes you want to bang your head on the desk in boredom.
