Hailed by historians, music lovers and fans of Americana, RIVERMAN! Is a musical excursion through the life of 'Buck' Mitchell, steamboat pilot. A multi-media presentation of sight, story, and song, it transports young and old to an era of Pioneers and Patriots, with tales as timeless as ' Old Man River ' himself. Through a series of original songs, carefully researched stories and photographs, Tom Hook brings to light some of the most powerful and poignant events of the last century. A collection of tales both factual and fascinating, RIVERMAN! Will leave you with your hands clapping and toes tapping, asking yourself, 'Why didn't I learn about that in school?' Chief Historian for the National Park Service Edwin C. Bearss states, 'RIVERMAN!' is a delightful presentation, very entertaining and informative!'
