I found the book "Historic Photos of Steamboats on the Mississippi" to be a very well illustrated picture history of the subject.

I was working on a model project pertaining to the River towns and its steamboats and this book provided many wonderful photos to go by. If you are looking for a good, overall book to cover an interest of this famous era in American history this book will go a long way to help you.

My only complaint about the book would be that a good many of the photos are not exactly clear. It is the old problem of very old primitive photography producing less-than clear photos. I have found a few of the photos in other books and somehow they seemed clearer than in this book. Perhaps they were retouched somehow.

In spite of this, overall, I enjoyed the book and it's many photos and history and would happily buy it again if I had to. Keep in mind that the book is primarily a picture book and as such does not have an extensive written account of the subject. It contains many rarely seen photos of the ships and region which is a plus.

The book is an excellent overall book for pre-teen children up to adults.

Very delightful book! a whole history of the typical wheeling steam-boats on the Mississippi River. The same vessels who spreading the Jazz Music from New Orleans to all the parts of US, and of course the whole world!
All the black and white pictures are particular lovely! Thanks!

Wonderful photos. Great details of many paddle steamers and the people who operated them and enjoyed them. If you're into paddle steamers like I am, you'll dig it.
