Long the main resource on this key American river, this book’s
expanded second edition includes dozens of new photos and maps,
updates, and six new chapters recording the twenty-first century’s
most recent developments on the Patapsco River. Along with
insightful narration of its impact on its watershed and on Baltimore
in particular, the book contains the entire recorded history of the

century. The Patapsco’s story contains some of the most important
and fascinating events of Maryland’s past, and this book allows the
reader to dip at will into the exciting and unexpected blend of people,
places, and events that have had such great impact on the state of
Maryland and the nation.
