Vera B. Williams Three Days on a River in a Red Canoe

William A. Alcott Three Days on the Ohio River

Джером К. Джером Three Men in a Boat


Initially intended to be a serious travel guide, Three Men in a Boat is a humorous account of a two-week boating holiday on the river Thames. Three men, complaining of “overwork” agree to go on a boating holiday together. After a rocky start involving the bribing of a railway driver, the three men (and a dog) cast off for adventure. Amusing anecdotes of camping and cooking mishaps are interspersed with descriptions of landmarks, pubs, and villages along the way. Hugely successful, the book spawned a sequel, about a cycling tour in Germany, titled Three Men on the Bummel (also known as Three Men on Wheels, 1900).

Джером К. Джером Three Men in a Boat and Three Men on the Bummel


Jerome K. Jerome is an English humorist best known for his book «Three Men in a Boat» and its sequel «Three Men on the Bummel.» Jerome tried his hand at a number of professions ranging from acting, writing, and journalism, but nothing seemed to fit. It wasn't until Jerome married his wife Ettie in 1888 that he found his inspiration. The two honeymooned on a small boat floating on the Thames River, and the trip inspired Jerome to think that he would create a serious travel guide. However, Jerome's wit undercut the travel guide aspect of the text, and he transformed it into a humorous adventure about three Englishmen. «Three Men in a Boat» was not received well by the upper class, who viewed the tale as vulgar and demeaning to English culture. However, the middle and lower classes related to the humor and experiences that the three men and their dog encountered while trying to go on vacation. «Three Men in a Boat» sold so many copies that Jerome wrote a sequel about a cycling tour in Germany, «Three men on the Bummel.» While it was not as celebrated as the first novel due to its lack of a unifying story, many said that its humor surpassed its predecessor. Readers can enjoy both stories in this collection.

Oscar Wilde Vera, or The Nihilists, A Florentine Tragedy—A Fragment, and La Sainte Courtisane


Contained in this volume are three of Oscar Wilde's shorter dramatic works. ‘Vera, or the Nihilists’, the longest of the three, is a complete four-act play with a prologue. ‘A Florentine Tragedy—A Fragment’, is as the title would suggest a fragment of an act and ‘La Sainte Courtisane’ is also but a single act. Wilde fans will delight in these shorter examples of his talent as a dramatic humorist.

Джером К. Джером Three Men in a Boat (to say nothing of the dog)


Three Men in a Boat (To Say Nothing of the Dog), published in 1889, is a humorous account by English writer Jerome K. Jerome of a two-week boating holiday on the Thames from Kingston upon Thames to Oxford and back to Kingston. The book was initially intended to be a serious travel guide, with accounts of local history along the route, but the humorous elements took over to the point where the serious and somewhat sentimental passages seem a distraction to the comic novel. One of the most praised things about Three Men in a Boat is how undated it appears to modern readers – the jokes have been praised as fresh and witty. The three men are based on Jerome himself (the narrator Jerome K. Jerome) and two real-life friends, George Wingrave (who would become a senior manager at Barclays Bank) and Carl Hentschel (the founder of a London printing business, called Harris in the book), with whom Jerome often took boating trips. The dog, Montmorency, is entirely fictional but, «as Jerome admits, developed out of that area of inner consciousness which, in all Englishmen, contains an element of the dog». The trip is a typical boating holiday of the time in a Thames camping skiff. This was just after commercial boat traffic on the Upper Thames had died out, replaced by the 1880s craze for boating as a leisure activity.[citation needed]. Following the overwhelming success of Three Men in a Boat, Jerome later published a sequel, about a cycling tour in Germany, titled Three Men on the Bummel (also known as Three Men on Wheels, 1900). Famous works of the author Jerome K. Jerome: Idle Thoughts of an Idle Fellow, Three Men in a Boat, Diary of a Pilgrimage, Three Men on the Bummel, Paul Kelver, All Roads Lead to Calvary.

Michael Church The Regulation of Peace River


This book presents a comprehensive overview of the first longitudinal study of the downstream response of a major river to the establishment of a large hydropower facility and dams. Peace River, a northward flowing boreal river in northwestern Canada was dammed in 1967 and the book describes the morphological response of the 1200 km downstream channel and the response of riparian vegetation to the change in flow regime over the first forty years of regulated flows. Beginning with a description of the effect of regulation on the flow and sediment regimes of the river, the book proceeds to study changes in downstream channel geometry on the main stem, on the lowermost course of tributaries, and on the hydraulic geometry, the overall morphology of the channel, and riparian vegetation succession. The river is subject to annual freeze-up and break-up, so a chapter is devoted to the ice regime of the river. A chapter compares the effects of two extraordinary post-regulation flood events. The penultimate chapter presents a prediction of the ultimate equilibrium form of the regulated river based on rational regime theory. An online database of all the main observations will provide invaluable material for advanced students of river hydraulics and geomorphology. This book carefully brings together a range of studies that have been previously inaccessible providing a rare and comprehensive analysis of the effects of a big dam on a river, a river that itself represents an example of the kind of system that is likely to receive considerable attention in the future from dam engineers and environmentalists. • An invaluable reference to river scientists, hydroelectric power developers, engineers and environmentalists • Focus on a northward flowing boreal river, a type that holds most of the remaining hydroelectric power potential in the Northern Hemisphere • Exceptional separation of water and sediment sources, permitting study of the isolated effect of manipulating one of the two major governing conditions of river processes and form • Unique example of water regulation and both natural and engineered flood flows • Detailed study of both morphological changes of the channel and of the riparian vegetation • Online data supplement including major data tables and numerous maps. Details of the main observations and provides material for problem study by advanced students of river hydraulics and geomorphology are provided

Vera B. Williams Chair for My Mother

Ivan Watson The River Flows On


The River Flows On is a story of two places—Guyana and Brooklyn, US. It sets out the tale of the main character, a young man born into a riverain family with a rich heritage, who is conflicted about his family and the river and delves into his relationships and actions that culminate into a downward spiral. The struggle to survive in both places and a small part of the unheralded and oftentimes overlooked narrative of many Caribbean immigrants in their quest for a better life in the US are essential to the telling of this story.
The river is ever present in one way or another in the life of our main character, despite his ambivalence. The promise of his poetic talent and the affection and love from others breathe energy into his characterization.
Finally, the contrasting outcomes for the featured actors in The River Flows On is a study in the vagaries and seeming contradictions of life that are, at times, confusing and incomprehensible. For some, the river is just another body of water flowing to the Atlantic; for others, it represents a vital, living creation of endless virtue to be tapped for all time.
