The first Western steamboat was built in 1811 in Pittsburgh, and thousands more were constructed in the years before the Civil War. These waterborne vehicles helped define the nineteenth-century trans-Appalachian West. Decades of incremental changes created a distinctive watercraft. KANE works as a nautical archaeologist at the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum in Vermont. He holds a master’s degree in anthropology from Texas A&M University. He has done extensive fieldwork at archaeological sites throughout the United States and has written numerous technical reports.

The first Western steamboat was built in 1811 in Pittsburgh, and thousands more were constructed in the years before the Civil War. These waterborne vehicles helped define the nineteenth-century trans-Appalachian West. Decades of incremental changes created a distinctive watercraft, and the steamboat became perfectly suited to the conditions of the Western rivers, transforming the West from a wilderness into a place of economic significance. In The Western River Steamboat, nautical archaeologist Adam I. Kane traces the development of this once commonplace vessel. Kane describes the importance and impact of the steamboat in American history and complements his historical analysis with clear, concise technical explanations of the construction and evolution of Western river steamboats. Using photographs, drawings, and charts to help readers visualize the early steamboats and the study of their remains by archaeologists, Kane explains how the rivers dictated the design of the hull, why stern wheels replaced side wheels, how hogging chains kept hulls from buckling, and why safety valves were of little use when engineers regularly overloaded them. Anyone intrigued by the vessel that chan
Reviews:
  • Best West
An academic but nevertheless interesting look at the steamboats of the American west from their start till about the time of the Civil War. Kane using nautical archeology and research to show how the construction of the steamboats evolved from near duplicates of Atlantic coast vessels to ones specifically designed for the most efficient use on the western rivers. He thoroughly covers the design and construction of the boats, assisted by many photos and illustrations. Although the book is rather short, it covers the topic very well and would be an excellent companion book to other studies like Steamboats on the Western Rivers: An Economic and Technological History by Louis C. Hunter.

This book is a discovery through historical archaeology, of the lost knowledge of how the Mississipi steamboats were built. It structures this as the story of technological adaptation of shipbuilding to the environmental and economic circumstances of Mississipi Basin settlement and development. The content is focussed on hull design and building, and, drawing on archaeological excvation of a hulls found in the river mud, does this very well. The discoveries from excavation are augmented with historical research. Being an academic book, it is thorough and expects intelligence of the reader, but is well within the ability of an 'educated layperson' to read. Unlike some strains of academia, it is thankfully free of ponderous and fashionable theories, and stays down to earth and focussed on its topic. It does however have very good endnotes and references, so it is always possible to answer the question "how does he know that?". It presents many diagrams of hull structure, so is well illustrated, and the text is economically (well) written. It does not give 'ship's lines' or worked-up plans and elevations, so modellers will need to go elsewhere for that. But is is an excellent primary resource for those interested in this branch of 19th century wooden shipbuilding.

It is a ok book but I didn't find much new information in it.
  • Blackredeemer
One of the best books on this subject. Particular mention should be made of the level of technical detail concerning the boilers and engines of these craft. I have not been able to find this depth of information in other works, and this is an area of special interest to me. A first class effort.
  • Hinewen
Excellent history of riverboats on the western rivers. This book is the best I have read on the subject. I learned a lot, and I am no novice to the subject.
  • Lynnak
Excellent! I noticed that Old Times on the Upper Mississippi: Recollections of a Steamboat Pilot from 1854 to 1863 (1909) is mentioned on page 173 of The Western river steamboat ----another great book you will also want to add it to your reading list
