This remarkable, well-researched bibliography is the most comprehensive work ever published on the historical series of books called "The Rivers of America". This important series of 65 titles was published from 1937 to 1974, and most have been reprinted, some many times. Each book focused on one of the nation's major rivers or river systems and captured its spirit, folklore, and history as never before. Carol Fitzgerald has written a very readable two-volume work that goes far beyond the dry reference work of most bibliographies. She includes insightful biographies of the series' sixty authors and fifty-three illustrators. Each original dust jacket is depicted in the text and some are illusrtrated in full color in the plate section. Co-published with the Center for the Book in the Library of Congress.
