"Glory Days" Paddle Steamers

I obtained a copy of the above for half price today. it's all about british coastal steamers and has become the first paddle steamer book I own not relating to Aussie steamers!

Good to hear your branching out to other paddlers Sean....

If anyone has a book on paddlers that they consider a "must have" book, why not tell the rest of us about it?

A quick post with the book name, publisher, author, and ISBN if possible, as well as a short description of what the book covers...

I'd like to build up my library of paddler books, so I'd appreciate any recommendations - I'm sure the other users would appreciate it too!

I have that book too, I'd say it's the best one I own (that's probably because it has many colour photos!)

I picked up a very interesting book last year, "The Hudson's Bay Company's 1835 Steam Ship Beaver by John McKay. Also included was a complete set of drawings. The Beaver was built in England in 1835, for the Hudson Bay Company to explore the Pacific northwest coast of North America. She was a Sidewheeler with a early Boulton and Watt's engine which ran on 2.5 psi steam pressure. She was 100 ft. Long and 20 ft. Breadth.

I'm starting a new thread where I'll make some suggestions - but they may not be everybody's cup of tea
