Angels & the Ancienne Frontière

Did you know Mark Twain's Life on the Mississippi (1883) is said to be the first book submitted to a publisher as a typewritten manuscript? 

I traveled with it recently; made it fun to go back and read about J.B. Corey's world as a flat boat pilot on the river, circa 1849.

Next week is JB Corey Week here...
