SACRAMENTO,

RIVER OF DISASTER

Folks, if you are into ships, check out the index below of those sternwheelers and sidewheelers that once plied their trade on the Sacramento River. In this story entitled, ?SACRAMENTO, RIVER OF DISASTER? by Leo Rosenhouse is told the river madness in the mother lode county that led to one disaster after another and:

A 15- YEAR SAGA OF GRIEF AND LOSS

THE FORTY NINERS HAD ARRIVED

Yep, the coming of the gold miners by the hundred of thousands compelled the majestic and deep hulled ocean-going schooners to give way. It was a new era. So much gravel from hydraulic mining and hand sluicing had fed into the Sacramento River, that the bed began to rise. It was called ?The River of Gold? and the steamboats pushed the sailing vessels aside.

IT?S A ONE OF A KIND STORY

Please read this. There were many a western story published ? the common ones about cowboy and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones bout the great old ships of the old west like this one are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out cause really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.

Here?s one of ?em.

FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY WEBSITE AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES.

BUYITNOW!

Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer?s shelf gathering dust. Humbly, I am trying to retain our past and keep history alive. Because Old Steamboat History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.

This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.

I hope you appreciate the effort.

SACRAMENTO, RIVER OF DISASTER

by Leo Rosenhouse

SACRAMENTO RIVER MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING

While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It?s a shame that our past is being lost. It?s as simple as that.

My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in excellent condition, the cover is pristine and in vibrant color.

As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.

Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $5.00 Priority Mail, $12.78 Par Avion (Air Mail) for International Mail. Texans must pay 8-? % sales tax. Thanks,

Tom
