Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Take a photographic journey along the 184-mile Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, from the streets of Georgetown to the railway depot at the canal's western terminus. The C & O Canal sprang from the dreams of George Washington, who wanted to build a transportation link between tidewater Washington, D.C. and the Ohio River. Though commerce on the canal ceased years ago, today it is a place for contemplation and recreation, a unique and precious blend of human and natural history. In more than 100 beautiful photographs, author Gary Anthes offers stunning views of the natural world including birds, fish, insects, and trees as he peers into the past at the fading but resolute houses, locks, and aqueducts left behind by the men and women who kept the canal boats flowing one hundred years ago. This book is both a treasured keepsake for tourists and a wonderful resource for history buffs and nature lovers. Codice inventario libreria ABE_book_new_0764343106
