On the River: Variety of Canoe and Small Boat Voyages; Walter Magnes Teller; 1991; Seafarer Books.


First published in 1976  by Rutgers University Press


This is a great anthology of writing by various writers/explorers who have charted trips on various American rivers. Lots of maps. 


Interesting to compare  this anthology of British river writing also on this Wiki


“On the River chronicles the kinship of people, craft and natural wonder through sensitive accounts of late nineteenth and early twentieth century voyages by canoe and small boat. These are deeply personal experiences told in clear, often moving prose by such well known writers as Henry David Thoreau, Frederic Remington and Edward Chichester. This book adds a distinct chapter to American history and literature.”  Source
