I really enjoyed this book. Of course, I live but a few hundred yards from the river. As an immigrant to the region though this was a great way to get to know more about the river and its history. I like to drive around, get lost and explore. This book helped put a number of locations and odd place and road names into perspective for me. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to know more about the Patapsco River Valley.

[note: this book was borrowed from the AACo Public Library system and is not one I own]

Not nearly as good as I'd hoped. Most of the accounts are extraordinarily similar, and offer little in the way of unique detail or experience. The editing is truly atrocious (e.g., in one place Oahu is spelled Chau). Its greatest success was enabling me to imagine the individuals present in famous images, although by the end I did have some sense of the surprise of the attack and of the distance between martial and civil Hawaii, which are probably the things I value the most.
