The Cuyahoga
by William Donohue Ellis
from the last chapter:
"Some rivers are so mighty and overpowering they force conclusions on men and nations - the Ohio, the Columbia, the Mississippi - and diminish the men.

However, 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-Americaís economy.

The little river is still challenging men to works so vast that mile for mile it canít be matched by any river I have ever heard of in the world."

This edition contains the complete text as found in the 1998 print edition of the book, along with some enhancements developed to aid in navigating this site.
