Summary
"Bonnie Stepenoff takes readers on a cruise through history, showing how workers from St. Louis to Memphis changed the river and were in turn changed by it. Readers will find workers who are themselves part of the country's mythology from Mark Twain and antislavery crusader William Wells Brown to musicians Fate Marable and Louis Armstrong"--Back cover
