The Niagra Book


The Niagara Book, cover image

The Niagara Book by W.D. Howells, Mark Twain, Nathaniel Shaler, Jen Bervin and others (Doubleday, Page, and Co. 1901, 2010). These pages commandeer the Falls' dazzling white— it's a poem of vast letters falling on their necks over the edge, a watery border, and many who have braved the Falls.

A one-of-a-kind book.

The excerpt below was translated into French by Vincent Broqua during the 5th Annual Reid Hall Translation Seminar sponsored by the Taamas Foundation in Paris, France. The excerpt is published in READ, edited by Cole Swensen and Sarah Riggs (1913 Books).
