Piscataquis River, Maine
The head waters of this river are found in the high lands which separate the waters of Penobscot and Kennebec rivers. Its length is about 65 miles, passing in a course nearly east. It has many tributaries, of which Sebec and Pleasant rivers, and Seboois stream, from the north, are the largest. In its course it fertilizes large tracts of country and gives to the towns through which it passes a good hydraulic power.
