If you are new to the region, take heart that this book will serve as an interesting introduction to the Potomac. The river carries with it the the soul of American History - from Capt. John Smith through the Revolution, War of 1812, dark shadow of slavery, Western Expansion, the Civil War, and today's Environmental Movement.
stone high in the Alleghenies to Point lookout, where the Potomac
meets the Chesapeake Bay. Author's photos tell me he was there.
Good background info on the spots.
