History of the Connecticut River

Paddle from the Enfield Rapids to Long Island Sound and travel down one of America's most famous waterways- the Connecticut River. Its calm waters conceal an unruly past, where native tribes lost ground to Dutch and English colonists who vied for the river's immense economic power. The skyline of Hartford looms on the western shore, with the gold dome of the capitol as a remnant of this robust economy centered on world trade. Author Wick Griswold takes readers on a provocative journey as he traces the history of the Connecticut River.
