Whether called a riverboat, paddleboat, sternwheeler, or showboat, the steamboat revolutionized river travel between 1810 and the Civil War. Greatly advancing commerce and travel, these floating mansions provided a romanticism and color which has long since disappeared. This superb volume describes a world in which every boy along the Mississippi yearned to become a river pilot, and every levee was crowded with goods waiting to be loaded onto steamboats, a world in which the elite of society rubbed shoulders with gamblers in the luxury of mighty river cruises.

The potraits of the riverboats are phenominal. A great work of history to go with the wonderful black and white photos of some of the giants in the history of river traffic. You will not be disappointed in your purchase of this wonderful book. More than a coffee table book it is an adventure into one of the most fascinatiing eras of history
The book shows many Civil War Riverboats, both gunboats and transports. Like all his books, William C. Davis, does a great job with this one also.
Some good pictures but there are much better books. There are many books with the same pictures and a lot better descriptions and backgrounds.
All in all a fair book for the price.
When I got the book I was surprise to see that there was a plastic protective cover on the book. I love it. But when I open the book to read,, the inside binder look like it would come apart. So far it hasn't. Other than that I enjoy it very much.
I bought this book for research for a novel I'm working on. I'm so glad I bought it. There is so much interesting information in this book. I wasn't a huge fan of Riverboats until I read this book. Such a fabulous, informative, interesting book!! Would highly recommend if you're wanting to know the history of Riverboats whether it be for research or otherwise.
I purchased this item because my son is fascinated with riverboats. This is a well written book that includes a lot of historical pictures and narrative.
I ordered this book for a research project and I was not disappointed. It was very informative and interesting. The historic pictures were incredible. I even bought a magnifying glass so I could view every detail. Highly recommend this book.
Nothing on the waters of the world compares with the utilitarian structures and brazenly opulent design of these spectacular creations. The pictures in this book are amazing.
