They settled the land by following these rivers westward, expanding the country. Using photographs, paintings, prints, and original maps, river guides Peter and Connie Roop lead readers on exciting rides on and over, down and around the Hudson, the Ohio, the Mississippi, the Missouri, the Rio Grande, the Colorado, and Columbia rivers.
