Rob,

Fred Ways´s books are all a great read. Check out our book review site

http://www.steamboats.org/history-ed...ver-books.html

If you can get a hold on his other books grab them! "She takes the Horns" is about steamboat racing. "Mississippi Stern-Wheelers" is a collection of steamboat pictures. And of course "The Saga of the Delta Queen" is an absolute must. There´s one more about the Allegheny River which isn´t mentioned on our book site. Check ebay frequently. Most of the books are popping up there...

Over the years we also collected some kids´ stuff but we never found the time to make a kids´ website. "Captain" Leonie just turned 8 a couple of weeks ago. So I know what you´re talking about.

Carmen
