A Page Out of History

by Riverlorian, Karen "Toots" Malloy

A new release by the veteran Riverlorian of the Delta Queen Steamboat Company. To my mind, "Toots" was the face of the riverboats for some 35 years. With this memoir, she serves as our eyes, ears, and heart as she participates in the last cruise of the Delta Queen on its way to Tennessee.
