Description

The tour extends from New-York, by Albany, Schenectady, and Utica, to Sacket's Harbor, and thence through Lake Ontario, to St. Lawrence River, and down that stream to Hamilton Village. Thence along both banks of the St. Lawrence, from Hamilton to the Thousand Islands; thence to Sacket's Harbor by water; from that place by the route of great Sodus, Geneva, Canandaigua, and Batavia, to Buffalo; and from thence to Black Rock, Fort Erie, the falls of Niagara, Queenstown, Lewiston, and the memorable fields of Bridgewater and Chippewa.

After viewing the interesting pass of Niagara, the author traversed the south shore of Lake Erie to the city of Detroit, and visited in the latter range Dunkirk, Erie, Cleveland, Sandusky, and other places of less note. The tour contains notices of what fell under the author's observation concerning the natural history and geography of the region over which his travels extended, with brief remarks upon such remarkable events and characters as have contributed to give interest to different places.

The tour is accompanied with a map upon which the route will be designated; a particular map of the falls and river of Niagara, and the environs of the city of Detroit. The maps were engraved by W. Hooker. Some boundaries traced in color on 1st and 3rd maps, as well as author's route on 1st.
