First published in 1954, this Mississippi River classic is filled with a rare blend of excitement and pathos.
"The story of these crewmen and their hopeless fight to bring the Royal Prince into port pushing her cargo ahead of her is so compelling that every sensitive reader will resent each drop of rain that swells the waters moving down against them."
