About this title:

Synopsis: A great river and those who sailed it

This well known and highly regarded classic of the opening up of the American West concentrates on the great rivers of North America and the Missouri in particular. Focus is, of course, placed to the iconic paddle-steamers, their captains and crews, that plied its waters and that have become emblematic of river navigation in 19th century America. The scope of the narrative is significant. Events are described from the mid 1850s and through the American Civil War. However, the book principally deals with the post Civil war period of westward expansion and the role of the vessels and the river itself in the wars against the plains Indians. The transportation of troops and materials played a significant part in these campaigns and this is, of course, is recounted here in some detail. Readers will learn about the exploits of boats including the 'Far West,' 'Key West,' Rosebud,' 'Luella' and 'North Alabama' in this fascinating account of the American frontier afloat.
Leonaur editions are newly typeset and are not facsimiles; each title is available in softcover and hardback with dustjacket.
