The kid had a lot to learn before he could become a river boat man. Like reading a sounding pole, tossing a lead line, pumping, caulking - - But there were more important things to be mastered before he could pull his weight with the crew of the Inland Coal. How to drink, curse, brawl, when to tell the pilot a joke and when to keep still, when to look out for trouble, the difference between a girl and a woman, and what the cat houses looked like from the inside - - in every town along the banks of the Mississippi.
