The Ohio canals live again through the eye and hand of artist-historian Frank N. Wilcox. From his years of walking the canal ways and exploring the broken locks to searching old newspapers and musty records, Wilcox built this record. Through his art and writing he tells the story of canal location and construction; guides us through the intricacies of locks and their workings; and restores for today's readers the texture and flavor of this colorful era.
Lynn Metzger and Peg Bobel reintroduce us to Wilcox's classic work that pioneered today's canal preservation movement.
