The sketch is brief, simple, but pleasing and accurate.

The stream was remembered by Verrazano as the "River of the Steep Hills," for thus the Italian words have been translated, and the name is justly descriptive, not only of the abrupt cliffs we call the Palisades, but may well be applied to the entire river, which, rising among the Adirondack Mountains, reflects the Helderberg, the Catskills or Outiora of the Iroquois, the Tachgaine, the Shenandoah, the Highlands, and many a fine, bold hill from its sources to its mouth.

The waters received the names of the clans hunting on their shores.

The red people had no doubt names of their own for some of the streams in which they fished, but it is probable that these were applied to certain reaches only of the rivers most familiar to them.

For some of the important lakes the Iroquois certainly had names of their own, for instance, Caniaderi-Guarunté, or, , for Lake George.

Thus much we seem to see dimly through the mists which hang over the unwritten past.The greatest rivers of this wonderful hemisphere appear to have flowed over a grand, lonely course to the ocean during thousands of years.The names these streams bear to-day they have received, as a general rule, from the European race. The Father of Waters would seem to have been known to many tribes by names more or less similar to that which it bears to-day.When explorers and colonists crossed the ocean they gave, as a rule, the names of the wild tribes to the rivers on which they met them. The exceptions on the Atlantic coast number just half a dozen; the St.Lawrence, the Hudson, the Delaware, the James, the Ashley and the Cooper.

Verrazano, in his letters to King Francis, had a great deal to say about the shores, the wild people, the forests, the fruits, the flowers; he declared that he had explored 700 leagues of coast, moving from a southern latitude northward, but strange to say, the "River of the Steep Hills" is the only stream he mentions.
