    The History and Recipes of the Legendary Delta Queen Steamboat

    Delta Queen: A Culinary History 1927-2008 is the result of more than three years of research, including a host of interviews with former crew members, chefs, and passengers. The book relates the history of the legendary steamboat, from the early years in California, including her stint with the U.S. Navy during World War II, on through her journey from the West Coast to New Orleans and on to Cincinnati, and her decades of travel on the rivers of America’s heartland. Illustrated with more than 150 historical and full-color photographs and 125 recipes for favorite dishes and drinks served on board the Delta Queen, this beautiful volume depicts the classic elegance and memorable dining that all of her former passengers will remember.

    With gold stamping on the front cover and enclosed in a special slip case, a limited edition of 350 copies of the hardcover book will be signed by the author and numbered. Advance orders will be accepted by the publisher, and numbered copies will be issued in accordance with the postmark date on the order.
