from the last chapter: "...the crooked little Cuyahoga, no larger than many a good fishing stream, required of men their best effort and magnified them. It turned them into giants who forced the valley into the pivotal position in mid-America's economy. The little river is still challenging men to works so vast that mile for mile it can't be matched by any river I have ever heard of in the world." Original publication date 1975.
