DJ blurb on Edmonds's Rome Haul:

The Erie Canal, with its roistering boatmen and hard-fisted muleteers, its legends and feuds, comes into its own in Rome Haul. Walter D. Edmonds has re-created all its lost glories in a book that is remarkable as a contribution to American folklore and fascinating as a novel of adventure. The dramatized version of Rome Haul, under the title of The Farmer Takes a Wife, enjoyed great success on the stage and screen. In the Modern Library series it will enlist a new army of enthusiasts.
