First edition. Near fine. 2012 Trade Paperback. 127 pp. One of the few rivers in the United States running south to north, the Genesee River was the result of the last great ice sheet that covered New York roughly 10,000 years ago. The Seneca Nation fished and hunted along the river, important to New York since the beginnings of time. In the early 1800s, it served as a source of waterpower for numerous industries. It provided water for early canals, and when the canals gave way to railroads, special sites along the river became popular destinations for entertainment. From the early 1800s, Ontario Beach Park was dubbed the “Coney Island of the West,” and in the late 1800s, trains brought scores of tourists to Letchworth for spectacular views of the canyon, falls, and wildlife. Today, a series of parks and hiking trails can be found up and down the river.Keywords: GENESEE RIVER JOHN SUE BABBITT CRAIG BRAACK ROCHESTER LOCAL REGIONAL NEW YORK FIRST EDITION NATURAL HISTORY AMERICAN HISTORY AMERICANA
