Summary: The Blackwater Chronicle follows five "adventurous gentlemen" on an expedition into the remote Canaan Valley during the midnineteenth century. The first person account of their adventure demonstrates the joy, humor, and majesty of the unspoiled American wilderness circa 1850. When first published in 1853, The Blackwater Chronicle was simply an amusing tale of five men and their wilderness adventure. Now it serves a greater purpose as an account or recollection of Appalachian history and literature. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: In the summer of 1851, a western Virginia innkeeper told five of his gentlemen guests that, "if you can only reach the falls of the Blackwater, you can take more trout in an hour than you ever took before in all your lives."
The travelers answered the challenge, and hiked into the rugged and remote valley. This first-person account of their adventure brims with joy, humor, and the majesty of the unspoiled American wilderness.
