One hundred years before dams were built on the Columbia-Snake river system, steamboats carried cargo and people to the farthest reaches of those waterways.  Where water flowed, sturdy boats and bold captains went - with no locks, dams, or artificial navigation aids.  Bill Gulick, dean of Northwest history writers, tells the story of this colorful period in the region's history.
