Book Description:

In today's age of bullet trains and Concorde jets, it's hard to imagine how difficult travel was at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Truth be told, travel took a long time. If you wanted to take a trip, you had to ride a horse or go in a carriage. Letters had to be carried to other towns by someone on horseback, and manufactured goods and agricultural products were transported by wagon. The Erie Canal-an engineering marvel-changed all of that.
