To those who may one day visit the Rhine it is hoped that the volume may afford a suitable introduction to a fascinating field of travel. Every attempt has been made to arrange the legends that they will illustrate a Rhine journey from sea to source - the manner manner in which the majority of visitors to Germany will make the voyage - and to this end the tales have been marshaled in such a form that a reader sitting on the deck of a Rhine steamer may be able to pursue the legends relating to the various localities in their proper order as one passes them. Includes an Index.
