Ralph Keeler, Cabin Boy
Pioneers on the Early Waterways, Part Seven
Class set order code: 8937S
Oh, how little Ralph Keeler wanted to work on a lake steamer! His parents had died, and he had fond memories of riding a steamer to his relatives’ home across Lake Erie. No one, however, seemed to want to give him a chance. He was too young and too small. So imagine his excitement when a kind-hearted steward decided to make him a cabin boy! There was just one problem, and it had to do with the awful rolling and tossing and rocking of the boat.
