This book is a profusely illustrated interpretation of life along Ohio's 19th-century canal system: the Miami & Erie Canal with its multiple feeders in central and eastern Ohio.
Gieck recounts the efforts of people involved in the planning and building of the canal system and draws an admiring yet candid picture of the canalers who made their livelihood upon the canal waters.
Designed in an oversized format, this beautiful volume will be welcomed by historians and engineers as well as by all those who find in the surviving canals a fascinating symbol of Ohio's heritage.
