Summary

Winner of Best Manuscript Award from the New York State Historical Association
This "beautifully written and unpretentious book" (Richard White, Stanford University) reveals the human dimension of the story of the Erie Canal. Carol Sheriff's extensive, innovative archival research shows the varied responses of ordinary people-farmers, businessmen, government officials, tourists, workers-to this major environmental, social, and cultural transformation in the early life of the Republic.
