Abstract:

On the Mississippi River in the 1850s, there could be no more romantic dream than to be a steamboat pilot. Braving the hazards of the deceptive, ever-changing river is precisely what Sam has dreamed of, and now, signing on as a "cub" with the pilot of the steamboat Paul Jones, Sam is getting his chance. His journey becomes the adventure of a lifetime as he is emotionally and physically tested by both the river and his employer - and braves the disastrous effects of a deadly explosion.
