"Intriguing and amusing anecdotes highlight this exploration of the history of the Charles River and its denizens. Appealing line drawings illustrate tales of colonial settlers in the Boston, Charlestown, and Cambridge areas as well as accounts of more recent residents, from Captain John Smith, Governor Winthrop, and John Harvard to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Robert Lowell, and many others"--
