In an era when no corner of the globe has been left unexplored, and people commute hundreds of miles every day in cars, trains and buses, it's easy to lose track of how different life would be without these modes of transportation. Travel back to a time when travel was possible only by paddle or sail, by foot or by horse or by carriage. From the hollowed-log canoes of Indians to the fashionable horse-drawn carriages of the gentry, Rivers and Roads presents the world as Virginians of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries came to it and through it. Evocative photos bring alive a world that is long gone but can still be glimpsed in and around Colonial Williamsburg's Historic Area.
