Afloat on the Ohio

Afloat on the Ohio by Reuben Gold Thwaites
By: (1853-1913)

"Afloat on the Ohio" by Reuben Gold Thwaites is a charming and informative account of the author's journey down the Ohio River in a small boat. Thwaites vividly describes the beauty of the river and the towns and landscapes along its banks. His keen observations of wildlife and the people he meets along the way bring the reader right into the adventure.

Thwaites is a skilled writer, and his love of the outdoors and history shines through in his descriptions. He also provides interesting historical context about the river and the surrounding areas, adding depth to his travelogue.

Overall, "Afloat on the Ohio" is a well-written and engaging read that will appeal to anyone interested in travel writing, history, or the beauty of the American landscape. It's a delightful journey down one of America's great rivers, and I highly recommend it.

Book Description:
Afloat on the Ohio, An Historical Pilgrimage, of a Thousand Miles in a Skiff, From Redstone to Cairo.

There were four of us pilgrims—my Wife, our Boy of ten and a half years, the Doctor, and I. My object in going—the others went for the outing—was to gather "local color" for work in Western history. The Ohio River was an important factor in the development of the West. I wished to know the great waterway intimately in its various phases,—to see with my own eyes what the borderers saw; in imagination, to redress the pioneer stage, and repeople it. ( From the Preface )
