Here is an immensely readable treasure-trove of Potomac River lore. It is a rich chronicling of the river's history, filled with sprightly and spicy memorabilia. It enlivens the significant events which have taken place on or near the mighty tidewater stream, and the activities of the men and women who have sailed its waters and trod its shores. And it recaptures inimitably the human foibles, frailities, and eccentricities that have touched life along its expanses. In important respects, the Potomac is renowned above all other rivers. Throughout its tidal reaches, the river's history is infused with the story of the men and women active along its shores, some of whom rank among the most eminent of America's immortals. The Nation's capital stands at the river's tidal head; this paramountly distinguishes the Potomac River. The book reflects in detail the author's lifetime fascination with the Potomac. In undertaking to chronicle the river's past, he has focused major research upon old records, diaries, and newspaper and archival resources. The volume's sweeping range recalls the river landings reaching out from the tidewater shores of yesterday, and it perceives the river life, today somewhat faded, yet to be imbued with aspects of the past.
  • I gave this five stars, but would give it 20 if I could. Loved the bookseller Amazon connected me with, too. An amazing catalogue of the history of the Potomac River. It's difficult to imagine today what an active place the river was for much of American history, but Tilp brings it alive. For anyone who lives along the Potomac and wants to understand it better, this is a must.

  • It was delivered in a timely manner and was in fair condition. I was particularly pleased at the illustrations. The book was written in the style of a textbook and each subject was discussed only in a couple of pages. Would like to have seen more maps it the 19th and 20th century. Book was interesting.

  • Charming book that I borrowed from a friend - and wanted my own copy. Living in the Northern VA area for years made me really appreciate the local history portrayed in a very candid and down to earth style.

  • One of the best references of the Potomac river I've seen.

  • I knew Mr. Tilp He gave a autograph copy of his book before he died. I hope I can find it AFTER a fire I had.

  • Wonderfully interesting. Hard to put down. Wide range of pertinate subject matter. Very informative. A great read for those who want to understand the area and those who already have knowledge of the area.
