Fifteen Miles on the Erie Canal

This was chorus of a song titled Low Bridge, Everyone Down written in 1905. Constructed between 1817 to 1825, the Erie Canal was the first transportation route between New York City and the Great Lakes. Before modern-day construction equipment, "The Ditch That Made New York Rich," was mostly made on the backs of Irish immigrants. Bond of Union, is a fascinating account of how one of the greatest achievements in U.S. History was built.

Springtime and Monet

Welcome to Spring, everyone! One artist who embodies the feeling of floating on a springtime breeze in the sunshine, at least for me, is Claude Monet.  His impressionistic works capture the way subtle changes begin to take place with flowers blooming, light breezes blowing, and the days getting ever so slightly longer.

Sarah Wolcott, Attorney at Law

If you enjoy mysteries set in another time and place and featuring a strong woman character, try Shirley Tallman's Sarah Wolcott series.  Sarah is a 27 years old, single, lawyer living in Victorian San Francisco in the late 1890s. Against her family’s wishes, she has opened her own San Francisco law firm, only to find that clients---paying clients, that is---are wary of allowing a woman to manage their legal affairs. With the assistance of her friend Robert Campbell, an attorney she met while briefly employed at a prestigious law firm and her brother, Samuel Wolcott, Sarah always solves the case.
