Description
 

Autographed copies.

By Gerald Sutphin and Richard Andre

This book, briefly available in 1991, and finally reprinted over 20 years later, is just as pertinent and captivating as when it came out. A treasure trove of history and photographs of the 1830s onward of the Kanawha River which runs from Gauley Bridge to Point Pleasant, West Virginia.

Freight steamers and passenger steamboats were vital to the growth and prosperity in this region. A large collection of historic photographs supplement the story of how these steam powered paddle wheelers became the lifeblood of Kanawha, Putnam and Cabell Counties.
Salt, coal, early racing, accidents, pleasure cruises, fine dining, towboats, and more is covered.
