Joseph Christmas Ives and the Steam Boat Explorer - Steam Culture

Today on Steam Culture, Brent talks about a steamboat that was used to help ferry supplies up and down the Colorado river. Trying to move wagons through the Grand Canyon was proving to be a very difficult if not impossible process so Joseph Ives came up with an idea to use the river that flows through it. Only with the power of steam was the boat powerful enough to go against the strong current of the Colorado River.
