My sister sent me a neat book called The Missing by Louisiana author Tim Gautreaux. River and steamboat buffs will enjoy this historical river mystery set in the 1920s.

Among his acknowledgements Gautreaux credits "The S&D Reflector, published by Sons and Daughters of Pioneer Rivermen, a bottomless vault of information on inland waterways during the age of steam; the stories and research of Captain Fred Way; the wonderful Internet resource Red Hot Jazz Archive; and I am grateful for two books in particular, Moonlite at Eight Thirty by Alan Bates and Clarke Hawley and Jazz on the River by William Kenney." So, you can depend on a lot of historical accuracy.

If you haven't already read it, it's a good book to add to your winter reading list.
