In discussing the Merrimack and its tributaries, the book inevitably expands into coverage of the history and geography of the territories involved. As the river passes within 25 miles of Boston on its route to the sea, much history has taken place within its drainage area. The book is divided into eleven chapters, each dealing with a particular geographic area, and working generally from the source regions toward the mouth of the river.
