Canals describes the development of these waterways in their heyday and shows the varied structures they engendered. This richly illustrated history of America's first transportation system provides capsule tours of thirty-five canals and a journey along two of the most famous: the Chesapeake & Ohio (now a National Park) and the Morris Canal (largely lost to development).
