"An eminently readable, nicely researched tour de force that goes on my must-reading list for anyone interested in knowing the Chesapeake Bay."--Tom Horton, Baltimore Sun. "This excellent book about the Susquehanna River is as good as, and maybe better than, the celebrated Rivers of America series books... Much more comprehensive than most river histories published before the recent rise of concern about dangerous water pollution."--John Goodspeed, Easton Star-Democrat. "Susan Q. Stranahan could well know more about the present natural state of the Susquehanna River and its 27,500-square-mile watershed than anyone... She has written a fine book, well-researched and detailed, a thrilling account."--Richard L. Stanton, Philadelphia Inquirer.
