Cap'n Shreve Says Have a Good Holiday...

Captain Shreve

...or he'll make you walk the plank.

While Henry Miller Shreve didn't come over on the Mayflower, he did build a ship that allowed the westward expansion of America possible... and also cleared up that log jam and made the Red River navigable.

While we're blogging about Shreveport history, this Sunday at Barnes and Noble in Shreveport Gary Joiner will be signing copies of his latest book, Through the Howling Wilderness. Get your copy November 26 from 2-4. While you're there have a Grande Peppermint Mocha, Pilgrim.
