Reviews about The Ohio (Ohio River Valley Series) (4):
Nidor
We bought and read this book the winter before we traveled the entire length of the Ohio River by car. We traveled from the Point at Pittsburgh to Cairo. We stayed as close as possible to the Ohio River on older roads. The book really helped us appreciate our trip down river. It provided no only relatively recent history but from Indian times too. We had the book along as we traveled and would refer to it now and then.
Even if you do not travel the Ohio River, you will find this book interesting, The Ohio truly was a Pioneer Interstate of the time.

The author is a self described farmer and collector of Ohio River history, but he is not an exceptional writer. The book is full of detail and stories but it's lack of organization makes it a difficult read. Events are covered, sometimes two and three times in different sections of the book, popping up unexpectedly in new situations. A good editor could have made this a much better book. I grew up in Ohio and really looked forward to reading this book but came away disappointed.

Great resource, if somewhat folksy, of the early development of the Ohio River Valley.
