520    This handsome, illustrated book chronicles the history of 
       the Lower Chattahoochee River and the people who lived 
       along its banks from prehistoric Indian settlement to the 
       present day.   In highly accessible, energetic prose, Lynn 
       Willoughby takes readers down the Lower Chattahoochee 
       River and through the centuries. On this journey, the 
       author begins by examining the first encounters between 
       Native Americans and European explorers and the 
       international contest for control of the region in the 
       17th and 19th centuries.Throughout the book pays 
       particular attention to the Chattahoochee's crucial role 
       in the economic development of the area. In the early to 
       mid-nineteenth century--the beginning of the age of the 
       steamboat and a period of rapid growth for towns along the
       river--the river was a major waterway for the cotton 
       trade. The centrality of the river to commerce is 
       exemplified by the Confederacy's efforts to protect it 
       from Federal forces during the Civil War. Once railroads 
       and highways took the place of river travel, the economic 
       importance of the river shifted to the building of dams 
       and power plants. This subsequently led to the expansion 
       of the textile industry. In the last three decades, the 
       river has been the focus of environmental concerns and the
       subject of "water wars" because of the rapid growth of 
       Atlanta. Written for the armchair historian and the 
       scholar, the book provides the first comprehensive social,
       economic, and environmental history of this important 
       Alabama-Georgia-Florida river. Historic photographs and 
       maps help bring the river's fascinating story to life.
