Review

Few if any are better qualified to speak about the river, its past, its present and its prospects for the future. The book s balance of interesting and informative text with high quality photography makes this a keeper. --Margie Fusco, Westsylvania

I grew up on the Monongahela River. As a little girl I watched the coal barges glide down the river. I always wished that one of those boats would stop at our little town. I moved away from the Mon Valley about 30 years ago. A recent visit with family in the area prompted me to read this book. I couldn't put it down!! I felt like I finally received my childhood wish... I was able to ride one of those boats down the river! Albeit in my imagination, reading this book made the Monongahela River come to life again.

When looking for the perfect book for my parents for Christmas, I was so pleased to see that someone had written a book about the Monongahela River. My parents and myself were born in Belle Vernon, PA right on the Monongahela and it played a big role is all our lives. The book is full of information, historical and geographical. It also has many great pictures and I highly recommend it. janetkane@earthlink.net
