Steamboating on the Upper Mississippi Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Massive, richly documented history of Mississippi steamboating from voyage of the Virginia in 1823 to about 1870. Experiments of Robert Fulton, steamboats as cargo carriers, steamboats in Indian affairs, during the Civil War, much more. Over 130 illustrations, including numerous rare 19th-century photographs and engravings, maps and other documentation. Introduction. Notes and References.

Book News Annotation:

A comprehensive and current bilingual dictionary, covering some 350,000 words and phrases, with some 530, 000 translations. Compiled from concordances of electronic text collections, one French and one English, the dictionary uniquely reflects contextual usage rather than editorial authority. A special 80-page section provides guidance on self-expression in the foreign language, including writing letters, job applications, and CVs. Thumb indexed.
