Last Boat to Fort Benton

Last Boat to Fort Benton


Very late in the Civil War Confederate Colonel Thaddius Kingsley and the tattered remnants of his regiment board the steamboat West Wind in St. Joseph, Missouri. He tells Captain Zachary Cole that the war is lost and they are heading for the goldfields in Montana so they can return to their homes with the resources needed to rebuild. Kingsley brings his beautiful daughter Rebecca along, reassuring Cole of his intentions. They are headed for Fort Benton, the head of navigation on the Missouri River more than two thousand miles away. Kingsley and his daughter learn just how slow and laborious it is getting a steamboat up the very shallow and treacherous Missouri. But Kingsley is sailing under false colors. He seizes the West Wind and states his intention to sweep the Missouri of steamboats and confiscate their treasure to continue the war. Cole is torn between saving his steamboat and thwarting Kingsley’s intentions. And Major Nathan Van Hill, a disgraced Union Army officer on board, is determined to stop Kingsley. Kingsley manages to enrage the Sioux at a village, and that results in a fierce battle as well as the Sioux dogging and harassing the West Wind on the long remainder of its journey upstream. As news filters in that the Confederacy is rapidly collapsing, Kingsley becomes increasingly more desperate in his efforts and Van Hill becomes more desperate to stop him. The result is a tragic and bloody steamboat versus steamboat engagement precipitated by Van Hill. Cole and Rebecca have a testy relationship from the beginning. But the rising crescendo of violence is transforming for many involved, and the two find a growing attraction to each other. But will anybody on the West Wind actually get to Fort Benton alive?

© World Exclusive The Lancashire Evening Post – Our Lawyers are watching !! www.lep.co.uk/

" Over the recent years, the world of news and media has been rife with scandal. Deception and corruption have shocked the nation. The need for a serious and reliable news source is crucial to our society, we are at breaking point. Feeling helpless? Wondering ‘what do we do?’ The answer lies in Preston . "

This Lancashire town has been through some dark times, and there to broadcast these crimes and atrocities has been the ‘ Lancashire Evening Post ’. "

The Daily Mail’s nightmares seem to come true every day of the week …….The world is in danger of collapsing under the supposed threat to civilization.

www.pressgazette.co.uk/content/you-cant-fail-notice-growt… You cannot have failed to notice the incredible growth market in c**p Local News Stories this year.

www.facebook.com/CustardShortage About
The funniest, quirkiest stories from Britain’s finest local newspapers.
Description
Every week Britain’s local journalists bring their investigative skills to stories of vital historical importance. While global conflicts rage, the local newspaper looks closer to home to the events that really matter.

These stories range from animal news (‘Smug Swans Attack Dalmatian’) to people in peril (‘Man Found Nailed To Bench’), and from domestic dramas (‘Oven Removed From Home’) to near-misses (‘No Flood warnings for North Somerset’).

Whitstable Mum in Custard Shortage is the first book to collect and celebrate these triumphs of British communities.

The next time there’s a global news event, just remember: somewhere a local reporter is crafting 500 words on the ‘Youth Found In Phone Box With Fork’, while their fellow hack is collecting ‘Tributes As Popular Lichfield Cat Dies’ . . .

www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/nov/22/local-journ… There’s more to local journalism than ‘Whitstable mum in custard shortage’
Pour scorn if you like on off-the-wall headlines or pictures of people pointing at holes, but local papers provide a vital service
