Steam Coffin by John L Busch

The author of “Steam Coffin,” John L Busch was king enought to provide the following information from the numerous publications who have nothing but the highest praises for his work:

Moses Rogers, a remarkable individual, saw in steam power the capacity to…make oceanic travel reliable and predictable. Busch sets out the odyssey with the support of beautiful maps and illustrations of many of the people and places Savannah encountered on its adventure. The book, manufactured to high standards, is worth the purchase price and the time to read it.”

Sea History Magazine

“While a detailed history of the ship’s career should be available to interested readers, it has not been until now…Though the Savannah was never commissioned as a warship, her place in maritime and naval history is undeniable.”

Warship International

“Busch has meticulously examined all materials relevant to Savannah and…tells an entertaining story in Steam Coffin. He has an ability to give life to the events and people he describes.”
