Steamboats West: The 1859 American Fur Company Missouri River Expedition, by Barbara J. Cottrell and Lawrence Larsen


An adventure story that navigates the rocky rapids of the upper Missouri to offer a fascinating account of travel to the raw frontier past the pale settlement. Larsen and Cottrell’s depiction of this one celebrated ride brings steamboat transport back to life as modern, fast, and imposing-an apt symbol of the westward expansion that spawned it.
