Paddles and Politics, Down the Danube

Excerpt from Paddles and Politics, Down the Danube The idea of cruising the whole length of the Danube in an American sailing canoe had for many years been cherished by Mr. Bigelow, but not until the summer of 1891 had the opportunity presented itself to make the journey. His canoe voyages in this country, the West India Islands, and in parts of Europe other than the Danubian districts, had convinced Mr. Bigelow that the traveler who was able to carry with him his bed, his food, his library, and his clothing, without exhausting his physical powers, was well equipped for learning something new. The canoeist, in his opinion, was the only traveler who could boast of the full combination of advantages thus enumerated. It was Mr. Bigelow's original intention to write a descriptive and historical book on this great international highway, and with that object in mind he invited an artist friend to accompany him for the purpose of making a series of drawings.
