Old Steamboat Days On The Hudson River by David Lear Buckman

This illustrated book is rich in historical details about the good old days of steamers. The author, whose father was a steamboat pilot, writes in a clear, unadorned style as when he describes the Hudson River pilots: "The captain of a river steamer in the old days and to-day is by far the most important man on the boat. He must be a trusty, experienced man and should be at all times agreeable to the passengers. Those on the Hudson have been for the most part men of this character and many became popular with the traveling public." (7.3 MiB, PDF, 172 pages including covers)
