Coomer, James , 1928-

When Young James Coomer Was Offered A Job As Deckhand On The Tugboat Pat Murphy At A Dollar An Hour, He Took His First Smell Of Diesel Fuel And Knew He Was Hooked. Life On The Ohio Puts The Reader In The Pilot’s Seat As Coomer Wrestles With Runaway Barges, Navigates Through Ice And Fog, Pacifies Angry Crew Members, And Contends With The Loneliness Of Working A Thirty-day Stretch. A Third Generation River Captain Who Grew Up On The Ohio, Coomer Has Been Observing And Participating In Life On The Inland Waterways For Nearly Fifty Years. A Modern Counterpart To Twain’s Account Of Life As A Steamboat Pilot, Life On The Ohio Depicts The Working River As It Is Today With Its Immense Towboats, Gigantic Locks And Dams, And Millions Of Tons Of Cargo. Coomer Captures The Movement Of The Boats And The Colorful Language Of River People. He Reveals That Life On The River Today Is Every Bit As Adventurous And Humorous As It Has Ever Been, And Not Likely To Change. James Coomer.
