The Susquehanna, 1874. Creator: Frederick William Quartley

The Susquehanna, 1874. View of the River Susquehanna on the East Coast of the USA. ...there is a constant succession of bold mountain-forms, wooded from the base to the summit; of deep ravines, where the pines stand in serried shadow...of winding banks, whose curves are of the most exquisite beauty; of broad sheets of brown water, swift and untamable, whose rapid flow has never been subjected to the curbing of navigation; of a superb vegetation, that clothes with equal splendor the valley and the hill-tops, the banks, the islands of the river, and the undulating plains here and there breaking through the leaguer of the mountain-ranges. All these attractions - these gifts of a tender, loving mother Nature - have been bestowed upon the Susquehanna'. From "Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In, A Delineation by Pen and Pencil of the Mountains, Rivers, Lakes...with Illustrations on Steel and Wood by Eminent American Artists" Vol. II, edited by William Cullen Bryant. [D. Appleton and Company, New York, 1874]
