Summary expansion
On the Storied Ohio tells the story of the six-week, 1100-mile journey down the Ohio River made by the longtime Secretary and Director of the State Historical Society of Wisconsin and Managing Editor of the Wisconsin State Journal, Rueben Gold Thwaites, his family and a Doctor. This new and revised edition of Afloat on the Ohio recounts the 1894 adventure from Redstone, PA to Cairo, IL when Thwaits chose to make the pilgrimage by skiff rather than onboard the faster steamers. It is a logbook of their travels and the curious people they met. Yet it is also a rich retelling of river legend, looking into the past to understand the great waterway while imagining the experiences of the early explorers, pioneers, and settlers who opened up the West through river travel from the East.
