Rich in intriguing and amusing anecdotes, this illustrated history traces the Charless path to the sea through rocky gorges and vast meadows, along with the rivers contributions to Americas cultural development.

Profiles of those who dwelt along the banks range from colonial settlers in the Boston, Charlestown, and Cambridge areas to more recent residents — Captain John Smith, Governor Winthrop, and John Harvard as well as Longfellow, Robert Lowell, and many others.Arthur Bernon Tourtellot recounts the Charless role in national affairs, including the protective advantages the river offered to colonists during the Revolutionary War.

He chronicles the riverside industrial boom of the 1800s, the twentieth-century decline, and the valleys reversion to provincialism. His highly readable narrative also explores the rivers influence on the painters, poets, and philosophers of New Englands golden age.
