The Maumee River runs more than 100 miles before emptying into Lake Erie in Ohio. And it carries a lot of the farm runoff that triggers algae blooms. But a new book explains that there’s more to the river.
Ryan Schnurr spent a week walking and canoeing the length of the river last summer.
He has turned that experience into a book called In the Watershed. It’s part memoir and part lesson on the Maumee’s place in history.
