Availability: In stock

The boats that plied the Upper Missouri and the men who piloted them were a breed unto themselves. Missouri River packets were especially built to survive the river's innumerable hazards and to deliver their freight and passengers safely to the Montana frontier. The Missouri swallowed many; around every bend was another snag or bar that could dispatch the fragile boats to a watery grave.
