Gave it 100 pages and just couldn't force myself to go further. Any comparison to Bill Bryson is vastly overstating the entertainment-factor of this book.

2.5 stars ... the history was interesting, but I am not the target audience for all the technical details about piloting a boat on the Mississippi. Also, it takes a certain personality (and money) to undertake the adventure he took. While his writing was informative on the history and geography of the area, I wasn't as keen on the rest of the book.

I love books like this. Not only do you get a peek inside one person, you get to explore another time, place,and culture in a way that history textbooks will never match.
