Synopsis

All aboard for a trip back to the glory days of steamboating. This book is packed with history, photographs, and tales highlighting the personalities of various ships and the men who ran them. Colorful paddle-wheelers that carried goods and passengers to help develop the pioneer American West are pictured and described along with humorous and wonderful tales of adventures. From ornate, luxurious crafts to hardy towboats, these steamboats had an inescapable aura of romance. Every reader who has ever felt a thrill at the sight of a gallant steamer making its way through powerful currents of a great river will find Blow for the Landing a nostalgic experience.
