Bloglines - Books on Barrels, Steamboats
Bloglines user Lawboat (email@example.com) has sent this item to you.
The MHN Blog The MHN Blog is a companion to the Maritime Heritage Network, a not-for-profit, comprehensive website of maritime heritage organizations, attractions, and activities in the Pacific Northwest. The blog highlights news, activities, and resources useful to the entire maritime heritage community.
MHN received a note from a Maryland author, Jack Shagena, promoting his book, An Illustrated History of the Barrel in America. I thought the community might be interested, since the barrel was a main storage tool in ships for hundreds of years. Jack has also written a book called Who Really Invented the Steamboat: Fulton's Clermont Coup, something steamboat enthusiasts might like. [link to site] Jack is running a small-press and is self-publishing, something we should support. As an author, I know how difficult it is to get published, and most publishers seem to be leery of maritime history books.
