        The Life and Times of the Steamboat "Delta Queen"

        The Life and Times of the Steamboat "Delta Queen"

        This audiobook shares the incredible adventures and adversity of America's the last authentic overnight paddlewheeler, the steamboat "Delta Queen." Discover the remarkable story of her 82-year cruising career. This boat and the extraordinary characters of her career have a dramatic tale to tell. It was built in a lavish grandeur of the 1920s. The Delta Queen is the result of a larger-than-life construction project, expenses near $1 million provided gloriously lavish splendor. A hull fabricated in Scotland. A gigantic steam-powered paddlewheel. An interior featuring exotic woodwork, elaborate brass railings, a Titanic-style grand staircase, and stained-glass windows. This is a star, ready for the drama of her life.

        And her bizarrely diverse career: First as an overnight ferryboat on the Sacramento River in California. Then as a US Navy Vessel during WWII. Auctioned off. Then towed through the Panama Canal to the Mississippi. A fresh makeover. Another 60-year career as the last of the legendary steamboat cruises. Millions traveled on her. She was the last great river symbol harkening back to the era of Mark Twain. And then Congress gets involved. You can imagine how that goes. Dodging miss-aimed legislation for decades until forced into retirement in 2008. Briefly a bed and breakfast in Chattanooga, TN. Currently new owners have successfully got legislation passed by the U.S. Senate. If the bill were to complete its long journey ahead to final legislation, the Delta Queen owners hope to return the boat to cruising. Can you imagine?
